Andrew Seliskar Named 2019 CSCAA Swimmer of the Year

Cal senior Andrew Seliskar has been named the CSCAA (College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America) Swimmer of the Year for 2019 after triumphing all 3 of his special occasions. Interestingly, Seliskar entered this yr’s meet as arguably the first-class swimmer in university swimming to have never received a man or woman NCAA identify. He finishes the match without losing a single man or woman race at NCAAs this 12 months. Seliskar received the two hundred IM on day 2, going 1:38.14 and damn the American record. He turned into just .01, far away from the record set by way of closing 12 months’ Swimmer of the Year, Caeleb Dressel, and quicker than every person else in documents with the aid of a complete 2d.

A day later changed into his mea culpa – ditching his conventional four hundred IM for the 2 hundred loose. He disappointed 3-time defending NCAA champ Townley Haas, for the 2 hundred loose identities, going 1:30.14. That puts him #4 all-time. Finally, earlier these days, he beat out protecting NCAA 2 hundred breast champion Ian Finnerty for the 2 hundred breast name. Seliskar turned into 1: forty-eight.70, transfer to #3 all-time.

He also swam most of 4 relays. Swimming prelims and finals in 3 of the four. Here’s a chronological take a look at each of his 12 swims this week:

  • 800 free relay timed very last: 1:30.14 leadoff (third as a group)
  • 200 unfastened relay prelims: 18.53 break up
  • 200 IM prelims: 1:39.Ninety
  • 2 hundred loose relay finals: 18.40 cut up (1st as a group)
