The James Madison women successfully defended their CAA title, extending their win streak to four with a big final day in Christiansburg.
JMU kicked things off by going 1-2 in the mile, with 2020 champion Julianna Jones defending her title with a 16:39.17. Despite touching well off of a best, Jones was almost a pool length ahead of the field, with her teammate Bailey Butler touching second (like she did in 2020) at 16:50.47.
William & Mary’s Anna Kenna and JMU’s Madison Cottrell went head-to-head in the 200 back after Kenna won the 100 back and Cottrell the 100 fly last night. Cottrell threw down a 1:57.10 ahead of Kenna’s 1:57.51, both women going more than two seconds faster than their pre-meet PRs.
Evan Arsenault of UNC-Wilmington snagged the 100 free crown, adding to her 50 free win from Monday with a 49.57 tonight in the 100. She won by almost a full second in a dominant sprint performance.
W&M earned one win tonight, with Annie Tuttle completing the breaststroke sweep with a 2:14.25 in the 200 breast, the only finisher under 2:16.
In the 200 fly, Mira Selling of Delaware followed her 200 free victory with another title, going 1:59.61 to just miss a best.
Capping off the night, swimming in different heats, JMU and W&M’s relays came down to a very close finish. The Dukes out-touched the Tribe, 3:21.72 to 3:21.95. JMU got three 50s to lead off with a 49.70 anchor leg from Jordyn Schnell, and they’re now the first post-NCAAs Division I conference champions in a season like no other. W&M also had three 50s, along with a 49.98 third leg from Kenna, but it wasn’t quite enough to secure the win.
Delaware took third in the 400 free relay, getting a 49.78 anchor from Selling, though Towson was able to get by for third in the team race.
