    THIS SEASON: Ridge Altman, a 2017 redshirt senior, returns after a year away from the team, a skilled breaststroker and 200y IMer looking to return to the form that made him a 2015 NCAA Championships participant and Pac-12 finalist.

Altman reached his first conference final at the 2015 Pac-12 Championships, finishing fifth in the 200y breast (1:55.04). He was also 14th in the 100y breast (53.74) and 19th in the 200y IM (1:48.23). His 200y IM time and his 53.59 in 100y breast prelims were both PRs.

    2014: Altman competed in three events at the 2014 Pac-12s as a sophomore, finishing 12th in the 200y breast (1:57.31), 16th in the 100y breast (54.87) and 24th in the 200y IM (1:49.46). His 54.54 in the 100y breast prelims was a personal best.

    2013: Altman provided depth in the breast and medley events as a 2013 freshman, posting an NCAA `B' cut in the 200y breast (1:58.95) at the U.S. Winter Nationals with a `B' finalist finish. He competed in three exhibition heats at the Pac-12 Championships.

    HIGH SCHOOL: Altman, who was a co-captain at Seacrest Country Day in Naples, Fla., finished second in the 100y fly in the 2010 Division IA state championships and third in the 100y breast as a senior and earned 2010 Naples News Boys Swimmer of the Year honors. Originally from Maui, Altman also won FHSAA 1A Region 3 titles in the 100y fly and 100y breast.
