    All-American Chelsea Britt Transferring To Georgia Bulldogs

    Britt’s Best Times

    • 100 fly – 51.79
    • 200 fly – 1:53.68
    • 200 IM – 1:58.91
    • 100 back – 52.64

    Britt’s 100 fly would have put her 2nd among Bulldog swimmers at NCAAs, behind only Kylie Stewart‘s 51.58. her 200 fly would have been 3rd on Georgia’s NCAA roster, behind Megan Kingsley (1:53.10) and the now-graduated Hali Flickinger (1:53.32).

    Sadly many (most notably myself) have written off the Dawgs prematurely. Will still be very tough with CVL, Smoliga, Cameron, Z, Britt, Stewart, and Raab, but crappy recruiting has hollowed their underclasses out. Will be tough for another two seasons. Need a monster 2017 recruiting class plus multiple star transfers to hold off the big fade after 2018.

    Any chances the Hawaii trip would be tabled after mishaps to KMcL though accidents can happen even just walking in the streets!!!!

    I don't think Katie would want the burden that she was responsible for the cancellation of the annual Hawaii trip. It was an accident.

    Just a quick note to admit that I hadn't been aware of the pair of baby s on the DIVING squad, prior to seeing those photos of them alongside our swimming team. No mention either in the original official press release on the 2016 recruiting class signees, so perhaps they are later additions?


    At any rate, a big warm welcome goes out to Rachel & Maggie, sure hope they will be able to take advantage of the still-in-progress Legends Aquatic Centre soon instead of having to trudge down to the Farm for their practices! Look forward to Derek Starks leading the programme too

    There's also a Maggie Gallagher in Gymnastics who's actually on the National Team - same person, or someone else?!

Ticket prices are $35 and looks like as of now there are only some 20 tickets left. Parking is free on Tuesday but using Bart is probably more convenient.

    Nice looking Beanies Attachment 5840

    Roster


    2016-2017 roster has finally been released: http://www.calbears.com/roster.aspx?...323&path=wswim

    Some key names were missing when I first checked about 15 minutes ago, i.e. froskis Abbey, Maggie Gallagher & Rachel Reeves (Diving) ...but no need to panic yet, as some of those MIA freshies did show up just now, so they must still be updating the page!

    An addition that I was unaware of previously is Mia Diliberto (Diving) - appears to be a legacy (sister Monica was a 2015 graduating from Haas?), who had competed with the Stanford Diving Club:

    https://new.berecruited.com/athletes/2804433

    Mia & Monica Diliberto


    Looks like however that Cat Ladd may no longer be with the team, albeit still a Cal student.

    Don't see Maddie Murphy on the roster yet, although I'm assuming she'll pop up as well? Will wait and see!

    Brilliant find there, beaverbear, I humbly prostrate myself before your internet sleuthing wizardry lol - sooo relieved for this confirmation of Maddie as a true blue & golden !!!

    btw, not sure the lighting scheme used this year is all that desirable - the higher position of the main lights tends to throw some rather unflattering shadows esp under & around everyone's eyes, cheeks, dimples & chins...yes perhaps a bit more of an artsy effect was achieved by revealing an increased dimensional rendition as well as impart more highlights to the hair than your standard/safe "2 umbrellas at the corners" flat-lighting setup, but IMO the corresponding shadows, hot spots & increased contrast don't really flatter portraits esp of women...jmo, of course lol

    Clearly, this is a conspiracy since ISI Photos is based in Palo Alto. Last year's photography studio, Golden Bear Sports, is based in Berkeley and took superior photos, right?

    Clearly so - additionally, ISI is just one mere letter away from becoming ISIS...
