After three days of seriously fast swimming, Big Red extends its winning streak at the Conference Championships to six years running.
Records have been falling like flies after the first day of racing at the NCAC Championships, hosted by Denison University in their home pool, the Trumbull Aquatic Center. The Denison men and Kenyon women are currently leading after Day I.
For the second-straight weekend, the Denison’s swimming & diving teams competed in split-squad action against Division I and Division III opponents. In a tri-meet at the University of Pittsburgh, the Big Red fell to the host Panthers. At the Trumbull Aquatics Center, DU defeated Grove City.
The North Coast Athletic Conference announced its All-Decade team from 2004-2013. Denison was particularly well-represented for men and women over the past ten years.
The Big Red squad divided into two groups for their first competition since the midseason meet. One half of the athletes stayed at home for a dual meet with Eastern Michigan University while the other half made the trek to Springfield, OH for a meet with NCAC competitors, Wittenberg.

Post midseason, it’s fun to look into the future and try to predict how the end of the season will play out. We’ve seen some incredible swims this year already from the men in DIII – it’s time to take a more in depth look and try to figure out how individual players and teams will stack up come March.
So, after some heavy duty training, December’s midseason meets gave us all some fast swims to marvel at and enjoy. But the big question on everyone’s mind is always – so what next? Midseason is a great way to look forward to what might be coming up in March for those athletes who will be rep-ing their teams at IUPUI in March for the NCAA meet.
On the third night of the Miami Invite in Oxford, Ohio, the Denison men locked down their victory, set two additional varsity records and finished atop the standings by over 1,100 points.
After a quick preliminary 100 breaststroke in which he broke the Division III National record, Denison’s Damon Rosenburg came back in finals to better his new NCAA record even further. The prelims swim broke a 14 year old Denison school record which had belonged to Aaron Cole. After his drop in finals, Rosenburg also owns the fastest time ever recorded in the 100 breaststroke in 20 years of swimming at the Miami Invitational.
It was the Big Red Show tonight at the Miami Invite. After a good start to the three day meet in Oxford, Ohio, the Denison men are sitting in first place among a host of Division I teams (and rival DIII team, Emory) while the women are in third after the day’s two events.

Kenyon and Denison: two of the top teams in DIII faced off against one another on Saturday. It came down to the final relay to decide the victors.
The Big Red Men and Women competed at Ohio Statue University last night against OSU, Virginia Tech and Cleveland State. They came in third in the point standings for both the men and the women, topping the Division I Cleveland State 180-120 and 188-112, respectively.
Denison senior Natalie Lugg led the way for the Big Red Women on Saturday, winning three events and setting a new Trumbull Aquatic Center record in the 200 breaststroke.
