Stanford swimmers Ella Eastin, Brooke Forde and Katie Drabot turned Wednesday into a silver celebration, combining to earn four silver medals at the World University Games in Taipei, Taiwan.
Eastin, a multiple NCAA champion, finished second to Japan's Yui Ohasi in the 200-meter individual medley in what would have been a University Games record 2:11.12 had Ohasi not gone 2:10.03.
Forde, who will join Eastin at Stanford in the fall, pulled double duty. She swam in the preliminary round of the 4x200 free relay and then came back to place seventh in the 200 IM, recording a time of 2:13.43.
Forde will earn a silver medal thanks to Drabot, a sophomore, and Eastin, a junior, who comprised half the relay in the final. The U.S. finished second to Russia by a sliver thin margin of .04 seconds.
Drabot then recorded the top qualifying mark in the prelims of the 200 free, swimming 1:59.37.
The defending NCAA champion Cardinal already has a roster full of versatile swimmers. Forde only adds depth and could be a candidate to replace the graduated Olympian Lia Neal on several relays.
Drabot, who also competes in the individual medley, earned All-American status and scored points in the 200-yard free at the NCAA championship meet. She finished second to Katie Ledecky in the 500-yard free at the Pac-12 championships.
Drabot, Wisconsin's Swimmer of the Year all four years of high school, holds several junior national records. She swam in the Olympic trials in both 2012 and 2016.
