Katie Ledecky and Ella Eastin each won an individual event on the last night of the 2017 NCAA DI Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, with Ledecky winning the 1650 and Eastin winning the 200 fly. Ledecky was just off her American Record in the mile, but was on the winning 400 free relay team that reset the records it broke at last month’s Pac-12 Championships.

Ledecky talked about what the win meant for her as well as the team and the program. Both of them talked about how they wanted to send out senior Lia Neal on a high note and their emotions after realizing they had won the national title.
