Water warriors: Miner swimmers make S&T history

While the women’s basketball team was making history with its first-ever NCAA Tournament victories, another Missouri S&T team was making history of its own in another part of the state.


The Miner swimming team posted the best-ever “season” for a Missouri S&T athletic team on the national level, finishing second in the NCAA Division II meet in Columbia, Mo. The high finish came as a result of 18 individual and group performances in the top eight during the four-day meet, including all five relay teams. S&T garnered a total of 33 All-America awards. In addition, the Miners had seven honorable mention awards for finishing between ninth and 16th in various events, giving them a total of 40 individual awards for the four days.
Matt Hug and David Sanchez-Turner each won seven All-America awards during the meet in a combination of individual events or as part of relay teams. Senior Mark Chamberlain and freshmen Kyle Gordon and Zlatan Hamzic each came home with four awards.
On an individual basis, the highest finishes came from Hamzic, who took second place in the 200-yard breaststroke and third in the 100-yard breaststroke, setting new school records in both events. The Miners set nine school records during the course of the meet.
