BERKELEY -- Sophomore Missy Franklin was named the NCAA Swimmer of the Year after winning three individual events - 200 individual medley, 200 freestyle and 200 backstroke - plus helping Cal to two relay victories as the Bears captured the NCAA title. Franklin's 200 free time of 1:39.10 lowered her own American record by more than a second.

Franklin joins Natalie Coughlin as the only Bears ever to win three individual titles at one NCAA Championships meet. Coughlin swept the 100 and 200 back and 100 butterfly three times from 2001-03. Franklin also established a school record for most combined individual and relay crowns at one NCAA meet with five. To top off her meet, she broke the school mark in the 100 free when she was timed in 46.66 leading off the final event, the 400 free relay.
