Perry, a junior from Hamilton, New Zealand, matched Kremer with six, adding to the six honorable mentions he earned in 2016.

Junior Andrew Liang and sophomore Abrahm DeVine added five honors apiece. Liang upped his career total to seven, including his first career individual honor in the 100-yard butterfly. DeVine also improved to seven career All-America selections, and was a part of two school records during the National Championships.

This past week, No. 5 Stanford finished fifth at the NCAA Championships at the Indiana University Natatorium. The Cardinal finished the meet (242 points) behind champions Texas (542), California (349), Florida (294.5) and North Carolina State (272.5), and ahead of USC (237), Indiana (229.5), Georgia (183), Missouri (179.5) and Alabama (153.5).

Full All-America Selections

Sophomore Matt Anderson picked up first-team All-America honors in the 200 and 400-yard medley relays. In 2016, Anderson earned honorable mentions in both relays, and has served as Stanford's primary relay breaststroker for his first two seasons on The Farm.

Sophomore Cole Cogswell earned an All-America honorable mention after helping the Cardinal finish second in the 200-yard freestyle relay B-final. The swim gave Stanford 10th place overall in the event, and was the first career All-America selection for Cogswell.

Junior captain Patrick Conaton's win in the 200-yard backstroke B-final on the final day of the meet was one to remember. Conaton finished 16th in prelims before winning the consolation final in 1:39.72, becoming the second Stanford man under 1:40.00 in the 200 back (David Nolan). It was the first career All-America selection for Conaton, who entered the event 20th on the psych sheet.

A two-time All-American in 2016, sophomore Abrahm DeVine added five honors to his trophy case in 2017. He earned first-team honors in the 800 free relay, 400 free relay and 400 IM, adding honorable mentions in the 200-yard individual medley and 200 back. A seven-time All-American, DeVine has earned at least an honorable mention in both IM events in each of his first two seasons.

Ryan Dudzinski was named first-team All-America for the first time in 2017, as well as earning his first career individual All-America selection. Dudzinski was part of Stanford's 200 and 400 medley relays, which both finished top-eight for first-team honors, and picked up an honorable mention in the 100-yard backstroke. Dudzinski's career total improves to five.

Junior Liam Egan collected two more All-America honors in 2017, giving him five for his career. Egan was an honorable mention in the 500 free, winning the B-final after narrowly missing the A-final. He also contributed to Stanford's school-record swim in the 800 free relay, which was good enough for first-team honors.

Senior captain Tom Kremer finishes his career on The Farm with 22 All-America selections, adding six in 2017. Kremer earned an honorable mention in each of his three individual swims – the 200 IM, 200-yard freestyle and 200-yard butterfly. He also helped Stanford take fifth in the 400 free relay, finish seventh and set a program record in the 800 free relay, and earn an honorable mention in the 200 free.

Junior Andrew Liang took home five All-America honors, including an honorable mention in the 100-yard butterfly, the first individual honor of his career. He added first-team honors in the 400 free relay, 400 medley relay and 200 medley relay, and an honorable mention in the 200 free relay. Liang's career total stands at seven heading into the 2017-18 season.

Junior diver Ted Miclau earned first-team All-America honors on the platform for the second consecutive season, finishing eighth in this season's edition. Miclau, who finished runner-up at the Pac-12 Championships, qualified in eighth place in prelims, earning first-team honors and a place in the A-final.

Junior Curtis Ogren picked up an honorable mention in the 400 IM for the second season in a row, bringing his career All-America total to two. Ogren's 3:41.66 in prelims was fast enough to qualify for the B-final, eventually finishing 16th.

Junior Sam Perry collected six All-America honors for the second season in a row, giving him 12 for his career. He set a program record in the 100-yard freestyle prelim before re-setting the record 20 minutes later on the opening leg of Stanford's 400 free relay. Perry was named first-team in the 400 free relay, 400 medley relay, and 200 medley relay, earning honorable mentions in the 200 free relay and the 50-yard freestyle.

Freshman Grant Shoults capped an impressive first season on The Farm by taking home first-team honors in the 500 free, 1,650-yard freestyle and 800 free relay. He set the program record in the 500 free (4:10.23) before finishing eighth in the mile (14:35.82) on the final day of the meet. Shoults was also part of Stanford's record-setting 800 free relay team, which placed seventh.

Freshman True Sweetser earned All-America status in both distance freestyle events. He finished 16th in the 500 free for his first career honorable mention, backing it up with a 12th-place finish in the 1,650 free.
