Stanford women miss winning NCAA swim title by three points

Original post made on Mar 20, 2010

Stanford women's swim coach Lea Maurer will be thinking about this one for some time. Why, she'll wonder, couldn't we score three more points? Had the Cardinal accomplished that, it would be the 2010 national champion. As it turned out, after three days of racing, only 2 1/2 points separated Stanford from being the NCAA champion.

What an exciting meet!!! and am glad it was available on the internet at www.espn360.com.

Florida came out of no where and really needs to credit the dive team for providing the unexpected points in this meet. Florida had two divers in the top eight both getting points.

When it came down to the final relay Stanford won which is all you could expect, but Florida needed to finish below fourth, and unfortunately they beat expectation and were third.
