Kenyon head coach Jess Book reflected on how his team wrapped up their season prematurely at “The Most Epic Time Trial Ever”.
Fitch first won the 100 back, swimming a 49.76 to finish first, but also establishing the #1 time for DIII swimmers this season.
The Lords had nine individual event winners in a 198-96 dual meet win against Xavier, while the Ladies chalked up seven event wins in a 154-139 victory.
After winning three individual events at the 2019 NCAA Division III Championships – and setting a new national record in the process – NYU’s Honroe Collins was named Female Swimmer of the Year.
Emory senior Fiona Muir looks to pick up her second individual title after winning the 50 free last night, as she is seeded first going into finals in the 200 free.
Kenyon sophomore Crile Hart, the NCAA DIII record holder in the 200 IM, is seeded first heading into finals in the same event.
The Kenyon Ladies took home the NCAC crown for the second year in a row. On the men’s side, the Kenyon Lords narrowly lost to Denison, extending the Big Red’s win streak to 11 years.
Kenyon’s Abby Wilson went 51.75 in the 100 free – the fastest DIII time in the nation by over half a second this season – while Denison’s Matthew Hedman continued his streak as the only DIII swimmer under 4:38 in the 500 this season.
