Utah will send a strong lineup of swimmers to the conference event this week, including eight that rank in the top-10 on their respective events all-time. Audrey Reimer, Sara McClendon, Mandy Gebhart, Emma Broome, Emma Lawless, Charity Pittard, McKenna Gassaway and Maddie Woznick check in as the Utes traveling to the Pac-12 Championships with at least one event time falling into the Utah record books. Along with the experienced Utes, the women's swim team will see eight freshmen head to their first championship event.

This year's diving team has performed excellent over the course of the season and will look to carry the momentum into the Pac-12 Championships. On the women's side, Emma Ruchala, Regan Caufield, Lexi Mills and Lizzy DeCecco all rank in the top-10 in school history on at least one diving event. Ruchala is No. 3 on the 3m and No. 7 on the 1m, while DeCecco is No. 7 on platform, No. 8 on the 1m and No. 9 on the 3m. Mills is now No. 5 on the 3m and No. 9 on the 1m from performances this season, while Caufield is No. 6 all-time on platform.
For the men, returning All-Americans Tony Chen and Luke McDivitt headline the group headed to Tucson. Chen ranks No.3 in school history on the 3m and No. 4 on the 1m, while McDivitt is No. 3 on platform, No. 5 on the 3m and No. 8 on the 1m. Also making the trip is Jenner Pennock, who ranks No. 9 on platform, and Chase Hindmarsh, who ranks No. 5 on the 3m.
