STANFORD WOMEN'S SWIMMING AND DIVING -- A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
Stanford has won more NCAA team championships (8) than any other collegiate women's swimming program in the nation and also added an AIAW national title in 1980, the season before the NCAA began sponsoring a national championship. The Cardinal has also finished among the nation's top eight in each of the first 32 years of the program's history from the 1974-75 season through the 2005-06 campaign and has never placed lower than sixth in any of the 24 NCAA Championships. Stanford has an all-time dual meet record of 254-23 (.917), has been unbeaten in regular season dual meets 14 times and never lost more than two dual meets in a season with the program in its 33rd season of existence.
STANFORD NO. 1 IN CSCAA POLL
Stanford is the nation's No. 1 team in the most recent College Swim Coaches Association of America Poll and has been since a poll released on November 16. The Cardinal began the season ranked sixth before moving up three spots to No. 3 and then bolted to the top and have remained there since a pair of victories over defending national champion Auburn and Tennessee during a two-day tri-meet November 10-11 in Knoxville.
