Emily Treischmann Downs NCAA Division II Record In 1000 Freestyle On Day 2 of SSC Champs


Emily Trieschmann followed up her breakthrough performance on day 1 of the SSC Conference Championships with another NCAA Division II Record on Thursday.

Swimming in the 1000 free, which is an NCAA Championship event at the Division II level, Treischmann blasted a 9:43.69. That shaved .01 seconds off the old record set by Georgia Wright of West Chester at the 2020 NCAA Championship meet.

It also crushed Emma Sundstedt’s SSC record of 9:46.63 from 2017, and her Championship Record of 9:49.65 from 2018.

Trieschmann’s previous personal best was a 9:56.75 set at a dual meet last year. A transfer from Florida State, this is her first season of swimming at the D2 level with the opportunity to race the 1000 yard free at a championship meet.

But that doesn’t fully explain the time drop. For example, her 200 free best time was set in 2019 when she was in high school at 1:47.84. On Wedneday, when she anchored Nova’s D2-record setting 800 free relay, she split 1:46.28.
