Denison Women’s 200 Medley Relay Swims Under NCAA D3 Record by Almost 1 Second

Denison University’s men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams held an intra-squad meet on Saturday, wrapping up a season that was prematurely ended after the NCAA cancelled all winter and spring championships.

Among the events was the women’s 200 medley relay, in which Angela Le, KT Kustritz, Maddie Hopkins, and Gabriella Nutter combined to swim 1:39.37, the fastest-ever time in Division III history. Although an unofficial record from the NCAA’s standpoint, it will go into the Denison program and Trumbull Aquatics Center pool record books.

Glad to see Denison doing this, too. Splits on meet mobile show: 25.97 – 26.71 – 24.17 – 22.52 = 1:39.37 (this adds up, too)
Either way, a great swim. Congrats!
