STOCKTON, Calif. - Yahav Shahaf will head to Indianapolis this week for the NCAAs, beginning on Wednesday and continuing through Saturday. Shahaf will swim the 50 Free, 100 Breast, and 200 Breast at the NCAAs. The sophomore won all three of those events at the MPSFs, including setting a pool-record in the 100 Breast.
This is the third year in a row that the Tigers have sent at least one swimmer to NCAA competition and the first such trip for Shahaf. This year, Shahaf set school records in all three of the aforementioned events. Shahaf swam a 19.61 in the 50 Free, a 52.62 in the 100 Breast, and a 1:58.26 in the 200 Breast. It was his 100 Breast time that officially qualified him for the NCAAs.
Over the last three years, the Tigers have sent Shahaf, Kenna Ramey, and Margaux Verger Gourson to the NCAAs. This year alone, the Tigers broke 23 school records. In addition to his individual marks, Shahaf was a part of the 200 Medley, 400 Medley, 200 Free, and 400 Free Relay school-record teams this season.
