The NCAA has released the men’s and women’s psych sheets for the NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships to be held at Conroe ISD Natatorium in Shenandoah, Texas from Wednesday, March 18 – Saturday, March 21. Below are the “pre-selection” lists, which will be used to make the cuts and get the meets under the maximum allowed entries.
A quick look at the preliminary psych sheet tells us that this year’s meet should be as exciting as the 2014 championships. The men’s meet was particularly thrilling last year, as Kenyon edged Denison by 8 points, and Emory secured third place over Johns Hopkins by just 1.5.
The women’s meet had some great performances, but Emory’s depth proved too much for second-place Kenyon, who finished 139 points back. The race for third was more dramatic, as Johns Hopkins beat Denison by 12.5.
Among the invited athletes are current NCAA record-holders Celia Oberholzer of Kenyon (100 back), Kirsten Nitz of Wheaton (100 fly), and Damon Rosenburg of Denison (100 breast).
The 2015 championships are being hosted by the City of Shenandoah, north of HOuston, and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
