The NCAC Swimming and Diving Championship took place last week at Denison University’s Trumbull Aquatic Center.
Ohio Wesleyan finished sixth overall with a score of 625.5 and record-breaking performances from student athletes. Denison won the meet with a score of 1898.5.
Freshman Anne Edwards managed to break her own school record on the third day of the competition by swimming the 1650 yard freestyle in 17:45.98; 30 seconds faster than her previous record.
The finish was Edwards’ second top-10 finish of the championships, following a ninth place finish in the 500 yard freestyle where she set another school record with a time of 5:11.10 in the preliminaries.
“I’m happy with the progress I’ve made so far but I hope to swim faster at conference,” Edwards said.
“I don’t expect to place in any event but I expect to beat my season best times and break the records I’ve already set.”
Senior Sean Anthony and Junior Marcus Ramirez had the men’s Battling Bishops’ best finishes of the championships on the final day of competition.
Anthony came in 11th in the 200 yard breaststroke with a time of 2:07.02. Ramirez improved on an 18th place finish in the preliminaries to come in 11th in the 200 yard butterfly with a time of 1:58.44.
