The Missouri S&T swimming team won a second straight New South Intercollegiate Swimming Championship title in February in Cleveland, Miss., gaining several high finishes and their 12th and 13th national qualifiers in the process.

The Miners finished the meet with 830 1⁄2 points, well ahead of the 733 posted by runner-up Ouachita Baptist.

During the meet, freshman Aaron Schmidt became the Miners’ 13th swimmer to qualify for the NCAA Division II Championships. Schmidt reached the finals with a time of 1:50.68 in the 200-yard backstroke to qualify for the Division II Championships.
