Those three ladies also make up a quarter of all the women under 16:14 this year. Shout out to all the D-Squads out there.

After 6 years, 2 graduations, and more than 282,000 lengths done in the university swimming pool, I'm very very glad to say I've finished studying at Stirling University!!! Thank you so much to all that made that possible, I can't think of a better place to have done it 🎓 🏊🏻 pic.twitter.com/YqKcQzSIBn

We’re all for 525,600 minutes… but pool lengths are definitely how we should measure a year.
We had to wait 4 long years for the transition to DI to qualify for the NCAA Championships. We knew we would be ready. Now, these four guys are going. And this is how our coaches felt about it. Now we keep working for more. #LopesRising #NCAA2018 @GCU_Lopes @WACsports pic.twitter.com/zZOFangFyh

Karma for years of breaking the “no swimming after eating rule,” probably.
