Way to go Kaley! Outstanding swimming!

Those were legendary D3 records broken, with Kendra Stern owning the prior 100 free record since 2010, and Fiona Muir holding the prior 50 free record since 2017!

With most of this team returning next year, look for NYU to continue to make waves in 2024-25!

I think NYU had a legit shot a the women’s title next year. Not exactly sure how many Kenyon and Denison graduate but NYU is not has negligible points not returning.

They also had a freshman girls who were on the cusp of scoring who given another year might be able to added that last little bit of depth needed for the title.

Congrats Kaley, well deserved after breaking two pretty legendary diii records.

Hope to see the last one go down next year!
