Winter Juniors Qualifier Steffi Beisel Verbally Commits to Arizona
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 10, 2020— Steffi Beisel , a senior at Archbishop Mitty High School and the famed Santa Clara Swim Club in northern California, has verbally committed to the University of Arizona. Beisel is primarily a middle-distance freestyler, 200 backstroker, and 400 IMer. In spite of a distinct event similarity to Olympic medalist Elizabeth Beisel, there’s no known close relation between the two. At the 2019 Central Coast Section Championships as a sophomore, she won the B-final in the 500 free with a 4:57.35. While that time was 6 seconds faster than she swam as a freshman, as a freshman she placed 5th. ...

When 72 Points Vanished in One NCAA Final: The Infamous Medley Relay of 2007
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 5, 2020— The NCAA Championships is one of the most intense competitions a swimmer might compete in, and falls just short of the U.S. Olympic Trials in terms of the cut-throat attitudes of the athletes and coaches vying for titles and a spot in history. First place in a relay at the NCAA Championships will earn a team 40 points, while eighth place is worth 22 points–2 points more than an individual victory. Needless to say, there is a lot of pressure to perform well on relays. The stage was set for the final of the men’s 200 yard medley relay at the Men’s 2007 NCAA Championships. 32 men on 8 t ...

NC State's Coleman Stewart, UVA's Paige Madden Named ACC Swimmers of the Year
SWIMSWAM
April 3, 2020— Coleman Stewart of North Carolina State and Paige Madden of Virginia have been named the ACC Swimmers of the Year for the truncated 2019-2020 season. The awards mirrored those handed out for Most Valuable Swimmer at the ACC Championship meets.

That would have made him the top seed at the NCAA Division I Championship meet that was canceled. He won ACC titles in the 100 back and 200 back and was a member of the winning 200 medley an ...

March 30, 2020— It’s time for Olympic athletes to stand down, relax those diet rules and dial down the training. The 2020 Tokyo Games won’t be opening in July as scheduled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Olympic officials made the announcement on Tuesday, putting everyone and everything on hold for possibly another 16 months. San Marino Olympic wrestler Myles Amine, a senior at the University of Michigan, had a feeling the postponement was coming before it became official. After earning a spot in the Tokyo Games by finishing fifth at the world championships last fall, Amine will have to wait an ...

Pac-12 Points Caliber Butterflier Emilio Perez Commits to Arizona State
SWIMSWAM
March 29, 2020— Emilio “Lio” Perez of the Elmbrook Swim Club in suburban Milwaukee has verbally committed to Arizona State. Perez, a junior at Greenfield High School, is a member of the high school class of 2021. He was the Wisconsin High School Division I (big schools) runner-up in the 100 fly in February in 47.97, culminating a championship season that saw him drop almost a second-and-a-half from his previous lifetime best. That swim makes him the 8th-best 100 yard butterflier in the high school class of 2021. He’s also a solid backstroke who split 22.60 on a 200 medley relay leadoff leg earlier t ...
