Zlatan Hamzic, a sophomore in mathematics, became the first student-athlete in school history to earn an individual national championship March 14, winning the title in the 200-yard breaststroke in school-record time at the NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving Championships in Houston.


The Miner swim team had a historic night as well, placing third in the team competition. This was the team’s third straight finish among the top four teams in NCAA Division II.
Hamzic entered the meet with the top time in the nation in his event this season and proceeded to win the title with a time of 1:58.03, breaking his own S&T record. He won by nearly three seconds over Drury’s Jesse Lawrence.
The national title is the fourth for Missouri S&T in swimming. The 200-freestyle relay team won back-to-back titles in 2001 and 2002 and the 400-free relay team won the 2002 national title.
S&T also saw All-America finishes from all 15 of its participants at the national meet. The Miners set school records in 14 events – including all five relays – finishing the meet with 320
