Swimming and Diving: Sagehens Ready for NCAA Championships

Swimming and Diving: Sagehens Ready for NCAA Championships

SHENANDOAH, TX — The Pomona-Pitzer Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving teams look to finish the 2017 season with a bang.

The Sagehens will send ten swimmers to represent Pomona-Pitzer at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships at the Conroe ISD Natatorium in Shenandoah, Texas beginning tomorrow and running through Saturday.

"We are really excited about the group we are taking this year to the Championships," said Head Coach Jean-Paul Gowdy. "Their energy, attitudes and effort levels over the last three weeks of practice between SCIACs and NCAAs has been terrific, and it will be exciting to see them perform against the best in Division III in Texas this week."

Both teams are coming off second place overall finishes at the SCIAC meet last month. The Sagehens totalled 12 individuals on the All-SCIAC list. In addition, all five relay teams from both teams earned All-SCIAC recognition.

Most of the Sagehens will see action on the first day of competition. Junior Mark Hallman and freshman Zach Senator will be the first Pomona-Pitzer swimmers in the pool when he competes in the 500 freestyle. Samuel To and Sarah Jin will start the NCAA Championships in the 200 yard IM.

SCIAC Champion Adrian Hui will compete next in the 50 freestyle. Maddie Kauahi, the reigning SCIAC Champion in the 100 freestyle, will also see action on day one in the 50 free. 

The Sagehens will cap off the opening day with performances in the 200 medley relay. To, Hallman, Ryan Drover, and Hui will represent the men, and Angela Ling, Erin Bigus, Kauahi, and Jin will swim for the women.

In total, the men's team will compete in eight individual events and five relays. The women's team will see action in seven individual events and five relays.

The NCAA will be providing live video and live results throughout the competition.
