In general, regular season training is to prepare for the biggest competition of the year, and for Hopkins swimming, this is the 2023 Division III Swimming and Diving Championships in Greensboro, N.C. Having been seeded to be 16th or 17th on the women’s side and 10th on the men’s side, there were slim chances of the teams finishing even in the top five. Coupled with other hurdles thrown their way, this made a strong showing at the meet much harder but the Jays pulled through with stunning performances.
Nobody can argue that Hopkins isn’t a prestigious school. Its students come from many walks of life, each with their own unique backgrounds, experiences and stories. Though they are all brilliant and accomplished, only one can say that they’re on the path to the 2024 Paris Olympics.
As we get closer to NFL free agency, many teams made big moves before the March 15 deadline. The San Francisco 49ers are no exception. Having lost many valuable players like offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill (or the Aaron Donald equalizer) and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair to the Tennessee Titans, cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to the Detroit Lions and offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey to the Denver Broncos, the front office has a lot of pressure to replace these lost pieces.
The stakes were high, but the rewards were higher.

Here are my rankings for the biggest moves made so far.
