Hamilton College's Megan Gibbons '12 (Clarks Summit, Pa./Abington Heights HS) and Whitney Rosenbaum '10 (Alford, Mass./Monument Mountain Regional HS) have qualified for the 2010 NCAA Division III women's swimming and diving championships, which will be held at the University of Minnesota's Aquatic Center in Minneapolis from March 17 to March 20.
Gibbons is in the national meet thanks to her time of 52.13 seconds in the 100-yard freestyle at the 2010 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) championships on Feb. 21. She may compete in the 50 and 200 free as well.
Rosenbaum qualified in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:05.66 at the NESCAC meet on Feb. 21. She will likely add the 100 fly to her NCAA schedule. In 2009, Rosenbaum earned an honorable mention All-America award for finishing eighth in the consolation final (16th overall) in the 200 fly at the NCAA championships.
