Wozencraft won the 50m back title at the 2016 NCSA Summer Swimming Championships. He finished third in the 100m back and sixth in the 50m fly, and was a B-finalist in the 50m free. He was a member of Dads Club Swim Team’s 200 free, 400 free, 200 medley, and 400 medley relays. His top times include:

50 fly 22.49 25.15
100 fly 49.33 56.47
50 back 22.66 26.67
100 back 49.01 57.68
200 back 1:48.32 2:09.58
50 free 21.17 24.62
100 free 46.03 54.03
200 free 1:40.31 2:00.78

Wozencraft’s times leave him just outside scoring range for the ACC Championships but he showed strong improvement this past year, especially in the backstroke events. Since December 2015, he has gone best times in all his free/back/fly events from 50s through 200s.

Solid talent. However, UVA needs more than just solid talents to climb back up the ACC.
