The Emory Eagles won both the men’s and women’s team titles at the 2022 UAA Championships last night, marking the 23rd consecutive conference title for the both the men’s and women’s teams. With the addition of the 2022 UAA title, Emory’s women’s team has now won 29 total UAA team titles.

Emory finished the meet off with a bang, breaking the Championship Record in the final event: the men’s 400 free relay. Pat Pema (45.16), Colin LaFave (44.82), Logan D’Amore (45.07), and Nick Goudie (43.26) teamed up for a 2:58.31, breaking the meet record.

The Eagles were dominant in the women’s 400 free relay, touching first by 4 seconds. Sammie Kass (51.11), Caroline Maki (50.53), Cailen Chinn (51.05), and Taylor Leone (50.58) teamed up for a 3:23.27.

The members of that Emory relay also went 1-2-3-4 in the women’s 100 free earlier in the session. Caroline Maki won the race, clocking a 50.40, with Taylor Leone touching right behind in 50.67. Sammie Kass was 3rd in, posting a 50.73, and Cailen Chinn clocked a 51.11 for 4th. Interestingly, the quartet’s individual times from last night added up (3:22.91) is faster than they swam in the 400 free relay at the end of the session.

Men’s 100 fly champion Jesse Ssengonzi (Chicago) won the 200 fly as well last night, posting a 1:46.39 to finish first by two seconds. With the performance, Ssengonzi is now the #1 200 flyer among DIII swimmers this year. He also broke the UAA Championship Record with the swim.

NYU freshman Caitlin Marshall won the women’s 200 fly, swimming a 2:01.30. The time was actually a tick off her season best of 2:00.88, which leads the NCAA DIII nationally so far this season.

Emory’s Megan Jungers broke the meet record in the women’s 200 back, tearing to a 1:57.66. She won the event by 4 seconds, and shattered her previous season best of 1:59.89. She was out fast, splitting 56.00 on the opening 100.

Other Saturday Event Winners:

  • Women’s 1650 Free: Suzanne Sokolowski (Chicago) – 16:58.07

Hard to say whether Emory men actually had a good meet because it seems like a bunch of the top swimmers weren’t trying to peak here at all (Hamilton and Pema in particular, and I think Goudie too). But Chicago definitely had a good meet. Ssengonzi and Clasen were swimming way beyond what they did in the fall and have emerged as NCAA title frontrunners in 2fly and 2IM.

Most of them probably just trained through.

Chicago gets so much better every year, and is always somehow short of Emory. I’m worried it will eventually be Chicago #2 at UAAs and NCAAs in 3 or 4 years. I’d love to see them get a conference win.
