Golden Bears earned prominent places on the 2013-14 USA Swimming National Team announced Tuesday, with a total of 13 current or former Cal swimmers on the squad. Among those gaining recognition were Olympic gold medalists Nathan Adrian, Rachel Bootsma, Natalie Coughlin, Anthony Ervin, Missy Franklin and Dana Vollmer.

Franklin, a freshman for the Bears who became the first woman to win six gold medals at a single FINA World Championships, made the National Team in four events – 100-meter and 200-meter freestyle, and 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke. In addition, sophomore Elizabeth Pelton made the squad in both backstroke events, and freshman Celina Li and recent graduate and Olympic bronze-medalist Caitlin Leverenz were tabbed in both the 200 and 400 individual medley.

The Cal men had multiple swimmers claim spots in more than one event, including Adrian and Ervin in the 50 and 100 free, and Tom Shields in the 100 and 200 butterfly. Freshman Ryan Murphy is on the team in the 100 and 200 backstroke, while freshman Janardana Burns is in the 400 and 1500 free and the 10K open water swim for the National Junior Team.

Swimmers were selected for the USA Swimming National Team based on their times in Olympic events from the combined results of the 2013 FINA World Championships, the 2013 Phillips 66 National Championships, the 2013 U.S. Open and the 2013 World University Games. Swimmers with the top six times in each event made the National Team, however, relay lead-offs and time trials were not included.
