At the end of the regular season, the Bears had 14 swimmers and one diver qualify for the NCAA championships. With the season ending abruptly due to the COVID-19 outbreak, however, Cal’s qualifiers lost their opportunity to compete.

Due to this unprecedented situation, the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America decided to grant All-American status to every individual who qualified for the NCAA tournament and for every relay team that achieved an A qualifying standard.

With this decision, the blue and gold now have 15 All Americans for the 2020 season. They are as follows with the number of events qualified for in parenthesis;

Briana Thai was the only diver to get an All-American mention, earning one in platform diving, while Abbey Weitzeil led the Bears with eight All-American mentions in swim. Isabel Ivey (7), Keaton Blovad (6), Robin Neumann (5), Ema Rajic (4), Ayla Spitz (4), Maddie Murphy (3), Eloise Riley (2), Sarah Darcel (2), Alicia Wilson (2), Sarah DiMeco (1), Ali Harrison (1), Rachel Klinker (1) and Courtney Mykkanen (1) are All-Americans, as well.
