As the college season rolls on, we will provide a list of our top five most notable dual-meet (or tri/quad-meet) performances from over the weekend. This list is strictly an eye-ball test -- no formulas, no power rankings, just big-time swims that stick out.

If you disagree, let us know. We are always up for a good debate.

Women's Top 5

​The Rundown​: Coming off a hot summer which featured a gold medal in the 50 freestyle at WUGS, North Carolina's ​Caroline Baldwin​ is not slowing down -- dropping a pair of blazing sprint freestyles against Georgia. Speaking of the Bulldogs, senior ​Kylie Stewart​ proved she is still a force to be reckoned with in the backstroke events. She has always been flirting around the top eight in those events at NCAA's, but looks to show she is capable of more. The hottest name of the weekend is Notre Dame's ​Abbie Dolan​. Dolan went head-to-head with Louisville superstar ​Mallory Comerford ​on Saturday in both the 100 and 200 freestyle -- beating her in both by a combined six one-hundredths of a second.

1.) Caroline Baldwin (UNC), 50 Freestyle -- 22.20

2.) Kylie Stewart (Georgia), 100 Backstroke -- 52.48

3.) Caroline Baldwin (UNC), 100 Freestyle -- 48.50

4.) Abbie Dolan (Notre Dame), 200 Freestyle -- 1:46.12

5.) Mallory Comeford (Louisville), 200 Freestyle -- 1:46.13

Men's Top 5

​The Rundown:​ Just like Dolan on the women's side, the star for the men was Notre Dame freshman ​Zach Yeadon​. Yeadon threw down a monster double in the 500/1000 with times of 4:21.66 and 9:02.47, respectively. Beyond that, a pair of USC Trojans in ​Dylan Carter​ and ​Ralf Tribuntsov​ put up some strong swims as well. Carter laid down a 43.66 and 1:36.66 in the 100 and 200 freestyle, respectively -- both top times in the country -- along with a 47.10 in the 100 fly. His teammate Tribuntsov​ put up a matching 47.1 in the 100 backstroke -- also the fastest time in the country thus far.

1.) Zach Yeadon (Notre Dame), 1000 Freestyle -- 9:02.47

2.) Zach Yeadon (Notre Dame), 500 Freestyle -- 4:21.66

3.) Dylan Carter (USC), 100 Freestyle -- 43.66

4.) Ralf Tribuntsov (USC), 100 Backstroke -- 47.18

5.) Dylan Carter (USC), 100 Butterfly -- 47.10
