You Can Win 'Em All

Author:

Ella Eastin, a senior at Stanford, earned a spot in the June 8, 2015, FACES IN THE CROWD after nearly breaking the national high school record in the 200-yard individual medley as a senior at Crean Lutheran High in Irvine, Calif. She has gone on to excel as a Cardinal, winning seven national titles in the IM and butterfly while earning 13 All-America honors. At the Division I championships in Austin, in March, Easton finished second in both the 200-yard IM and the 200 fly but accomplished the unprecedented by winning the 400 IM (3:57.03) for the fourth time in four seasons. Her performance, which included a leg on the victorious 4 × 200 freestyle relay, helped Stanford take its third straight women's championship. Though Eastin missed out on the 2016 Olympics, her sights are set on Tokyo.
