Arizona Swimming is doing it the right way.

If you want to know of an athletics program at Arizona doing it the right way, look no further than women's swimming. For the fifth time in ten years, an Arizona swimmer has been named Pac-12 Woman of the Year. This year was Margo Geer, who is the bottom swimmer in the picture above. She is a three-time National Champion and 27-time All-American, but reading everything she's done outside the pool is great as well. Congrats to Geer, and congrats to Arizona swimming and diving as a program. That's what it's about.

Baseball
