“We are thrilled to host three of our premiere championship events in the Seattle area,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “In addition to being one of the most picturesque cities in the world, Seattle has a passionate fan base for Pac-12 sports and provides a great atmosphere for our student-athletes.”

 

Pac-12 Women’s Swimming and Men’s and Women’s Diving Championships
Year in and year out, Pac-12 women’s swimming boasts some of the best swimmers in not just collegiate swimming, but on the international level as well. The 2014 Pac-12 Women’s Swimming Championships will again showcase several NCAA standouts and Olympians from all over the world. Among the talented student-athletes in the pool competing for a Pac-12 title are 10 Olympians from the 2012 London Olympic Games, including medal winners Rachel Bootsma (women’s swimming, California), Missy Franklin (women’s swimming, California), Lia Neal (women’s swimming, Stanford). The Pac-12 Men’s and Women’s Diving Championships will also feature some of the top talent in the world, including two 2012 Olympians Kristian Ipsen (men’s diving, Stanford), a bronze medalist, and Riley McCormick (men’s diving, Arizona State).

Pac-12 Men’s Swimming Championships
The Pac-12 Men’s Swimming Championships will showcase some of the top swimmers in the world in a competitive meet that pits four teams currently ranked in the top 15 in the recent College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) poll. Third-ranked California looks to defend its Conference title after last year’s meet saw the Bears win their first league crown in over 30 years and upset Stanford’s Pac-12-title streak of 31-straight. Several Olympians and national team members are in the field, including four reigning NCAA Champions from last year.

Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament
The Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament will be played at KeyArena for the second year in a row. Seattle is a great supporter of women’s basketball with a very knowledgeable and passionate fan base. Last year’s inaugural tournament in Seattle was a great success with improved attendance, exciting play on the court, and a great overall buzz among fans. This year’s tournament will include three ranked and four potential NCAA Tournament teams, including No. 4 Stanford, No. 18 California and No. 20 Arizona State. The Golden Bears are coming off their first-ever trip to the NCAA Final Four last year, while the Cardinal are looking to capture an eight-straight tournament crown.
