Hard to recruit against Stanford…

Athletic facilities, indoor and outdoor pools, great weather, legendary alumni, a super stacked team that will push each other in practice to swim their best…the list goes on and on. And obviously we have some of those things, too but it’s just so frustrating that Stanford has gotten the #1 and even #2 sometimes top recruits the past 3 years now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the following year‘s #1 recruit (Bella Sims) goes there, too. That’s what makes our coaching staff so amazing though- we can still win and recruit almost as good as Stanford without the best of those variables. I would never want to wish those top-notch Stanford swimmers and recruits to have poor performances (since that affects USA swimming too) but it would greatly help our recruiting if they didn’t build on their fast times to maybe prove Greg Meehan isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. I wonder if UVA will ever improve upon the AFC facility- add a diving well, spectator seating on both sides, etc. That would be one way to bulk up our recruiting chances.
