USC swimming senior Katinka Hosszu has one final chance to sign the NCAA history books this week as the No. 7 Women of Troy compete for a national championship

Katinka6.jpgAs a junior, she won three individual NCAA crowns en route to the Honda Award, which is given to the nation's top collegiate female swimmer.  The only thing left to do is do it again.

Kristine Quance (1995-96 and 1996-97) is USC swimming and diving's only two-time Honda Award winner and joins Cheryl Miller as the only Trojans to be so honored twice.  Hosszu will not hear about the Honda until later this spring, but she can make her final case by dominating the nation's best competition.

Hosszu's early arguments are more than convincing.  She won the 200y IM, 200y free and 200y fly at the Pac-12 Championships.  She holds the all-time Trojan records in the 200y free, 200y IM and 400y IM. 

The Hungarian import will race three events at NCAAs before setting her sights on gold in London 2012.
