Emory took down the NCAA D3 record in the women’s 200-yard free relay at the 2016 NCAA Division III Championships.

The foursome of Fiona Muir (23.13), Marcela Sanchez-Aizcorbe (22.84), Megan Taylor (22.69) and Marissa Bergh (22.76) set the record with a 1:31.42.  That swim cleared the previous mark of 1:31.80 set by Emory back in 2010.

Denison’s Carolyn Kane, Ashley Yearwood, Kate Wright and Mary Van Leuven also cleared the previous record with a second-place 1:31.79.  Kenyon’s Hannah Lobb, Abby Wilson, Katie Kaestner and Jenner McLeod finished third in 1:32.07.

    Who cares about a 15000 (7656 undergrad, 6677 graduate ) student body (13225 staff too!!) Division I university with a graduate and medical school with swimming in Division III. Wake up Swimming World, they broke their own 2010 record of 1:31.80, not some other small school Division III record!! Most Division III programs are far less than 7000 student body and 100 swimmers on a “no athletic scholarships” program, Wake up NCAA too!!
