Emory Wins 2022 DIII Men’s Swimming And Diving Championships

2022 NCAA DIVISION III SWIMMING AND DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Emory University men’s team won their second overall NCAA Division DIII Swimming And Diving Championships this Saturday, and their first national title since 2017. They scored a total of 427.5 points and beat second-place finisher Johns Hopkins by 87.5 points. By comparison, they scored 438 points in 2017 and beat runners-up Kenyon by 85 points.

Although the Eagles only had one individual champion, Jason Hamilton in the 200 breast, their team has incredible depth. They had a total of 14 A-final finishes and 16 B-Final finishes and won two relays: the 200 medley relay and the 800 free relay. In addition, their 800 free relay was a new DIII national record, as Pat Pema (1:37.42), Logan D’Amore (1:37.83), Jason Hamilton (1:38.87), and Nicholas Goudie (1:35.37) combined for a time of 6:28.29 to take down Johns Hopkins’ former record of 6:29.27 from all the way back in 2013. Goudie was the team’s top scorer with 47 points, and Hamilton and diver Lucas Bumgarner followed with 36 and 33 points respectivley.

There was an incredibly tight rae for second place, with Johns Hopkins edging out Denison by just 0.5 points.

Emory’s win marks the first time an NCAA DIII champion has been crowned since 2019, as the 2020 and 2021 championships were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I’d like to thank SwimSwam for their fantastic coverage of this meet, especially given the challenge that it coincided with D1 women’s NCAAs. On behalf of D3 swimmers and swammers everywhere, thank you!

the depth that Emory has is just crazy. They maxed out their NCAA roster and had more guys at home who could have scored.

Gotta say, it’s impressive Denison managed third without having even one finish in the top 2. Guess the team race really prioritizes quantity over quality.

Hey guys, I forgot the meet was happening until late last night and only caught the part of the team awards ceremony where they handed out trophies. I did not happen to see the Kenyon men at all during this ceremony. Can someone confirm whether or not the kenyon men made it to the meet? I am very worried about them.
