It would not be an exaggeration to say that 2012-13 was the best year in the history of Pioneer swimming. In its third year under head coach Ben Loorz — and just its fourth since joining NCAA Division II — Cal State East Bay set 16 school records and sent four student-athletes to a national championship.

The Pioneers won eight of their meets during the season, and they also finished as the top Division II school at the UNLV Invitational in Las Vegas. They had high expectations heading into the Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference (PCSC) Championships in February, but few could have predicted the performance they would turn in. Over the course of four days at the Splash! Aquatic Center in La Mirada, Calif., East Bay shattered nearly every record on the books. They took second place overall, the best finish in program history, while nine swimmers earned All-Conference honors thanks to top-8 finishes in individual events.
