2023 Women’s Division I NCAAs: Swims you Might Have Missed on Night 4


Indiana’s Mariah Denigan swam a 15:52.18 during the afternoon heats of the 1650. That swim ended up earning Denigan All-American honors as she placed seventh. That also was a personal best for the sophomore as her previous best stood at a 15:57.82 which she swam at Big Tens a month ago. 

Tonight’s 100 free featured two swims you might have missed. The first came from Louisville’s Gabi Albiero who swam a personal best of 46.80 to finish fourth. Albiero’s best coming into the meet was a 46.95 which she swam at ACCs. Notably, Albiero was fifth in the event last year swimming a time of 47.32. 

In addition to Albiero, Ohio State’s Kit Kat Zenick also had a big swim you may have missed. Zenick was sixth in a personal best of 47.27. That was a tenth faster than her previous personal best of 47.37 which she swam at 2023 Big Tens. That was Zenick’s third personal best of the meet as she swam a personal best in prelims of the 100 fly as well as a best time in the 50 free  leading off Ohio State’s relay. Later in the evening, Zenick swam even faster in the 100 free while leading off the Buckeye’s 400 free relay as Zenick swam a 47.14.

Mona McSharry of Tennessee swam a 2:04.59 to finish fourth in the 200 breast. That improved upon her previous personal best of 2:05.11 which she swam to win the SEC title a month ago. McSharry also swam a personal best yesterday in the 100 breast. 

Tennessee teammate Sara Stotler swam a 1:53.94 to finish 10th in the 200 fly. That was a best time as her previous best stood at a 1:54.88 from SECs a month ago.

Kitkat Zenick announced on her social media regarding her mother passing away soon before NCAAs… what an amazing, strong young woman! A huge inspiration.

One you still missed.

You gave recognition to Katherine “Kit Kat Zenick”, for her improved 100 Free to 6th in :47.27.

You then still missed that she thereafter lead off the Ohio State 4 x 100 Free Relay in an even newer PB,::47.14

Break me off a piece of that 4 x PB Buckeye “Kit Kat” bar !!!!
