The UMR swimming team placed fourth at the NCAA Championships in March, its highest result at a national meet since 1998 and its fourth straight top-10 finish. The 12 team members earned a total of 37 All-America honors, 17 of which was based on individual performance, and established nine new school records.

Matt Hug broke records in the 200-, 500-, 1,000- and 1,650-yard freestyle events and anchored the 800-yard freestyle relay that came in fourth place.
Travis Stensby broke records in the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard backstroke. He was part of the 400-yard medley relay team with Kyle Kammer, David Calcara and Mark Chamberlain that set a new mark during the meet.

Matt Adams, who was part of the 800-freestyle relay team with Hug, Chamberlain and Andy Shelley, also broke the oldest standing school record in a non-diving event, breaking the record Derek Coon, Phys’86, held for 21 years.
