2014 Swammy Awards Presented by TYR
Kaitlin Pawlowicz became just the second swimmer this season to beat Georgia’s MacLean-McDermott duo in a 1000 or 1650 freestyle.
She absolutely ripped it coming home, passing Franklin in order to touch first in a new NCAA record of 4:32.53. On the last 50 she was a 25.81, over a second faster than anyone else split on the last length.
Her multiple national records, success on the NCAA scene, medal performances at international meets, and the fact that she was able to swim best times at four different championship meets throughout the year are what made Brittany MacLean the perfect recipient for this Swammy award.
Cal’s Liz Pelton (right) and Missy Franklin (center) lead the NCAA with 4 individual “A” cuts each, and Rachel Bootsma (left) is also qualified.
Brittany MacLean has been named the 2014 Canadian Female Swimmer of the Year.
