GAMBIER, Ohio – Racine Ross and Gail Anderson of the Kenyon Ladies swimming and diving team earned NCAA ‘B’ cut times on Saturday as the team hosted its annual Fast Chance Invitational at James A. Steen Aquatics Center.
The unscored meet featured scheduled events followed by time trials in which swimmers try to shave seconds off their best times in order to jockey for qualifying marks in the upcoming NCAA Division III Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Ross’ 56.07 mark during the 100-yard butterfly time trial was a little more than a half-second needed (56.58) to earn qualifying standards. As for Anderson, she completed the 1,650-yard freestyle in 17:21.70 with 12 seconds to spare.
Following next weekend’s NCAA Diving Regional at Denison University, the NCAA Championship meet will take place March 18-21
