Women's swimmer is NESCAC performer of the week
Hamilton College women's swimmer Maggie Rosenbaum '14 (Alford, Mass./Monument Mountain Regional HS) was selected the NESCAC Performer of the Week on Feb. 3.
The honor is the second for Rosenbaum during her Hamilton career. She finished first in two individual events and set a pool record in one of them in the Continentals' dual meet victory against Rensselaer at Hamilton's Bristol Pool on Feb. 1. She also was part of two winning relays.
Rosenbaum posted a pool-record time of 55.41 seconds in the 100-yard butterfly and captured first place in the 100 backstroke by more than seven seconds with a time of 59.63. Her 100 fly time is currently the fastest in Division III.
Rosenbaum was part of a 400 medley relay that finished first with a time of 4:10.03 and she led off a 400 freestyle relay that won in 3:43.39. She is a six-time All-American and won national titles in the 100 back at the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Division III championships.
Rosenbaum and the rest of the women's team won't compete again until the 2014 NESCAC Women's Swimming & Diving Championships at Williams College from Friday, Feb. 14, through Sunday, Feb. 21.
