Maggie Rosenbaum '14 finished first in the 200-yard backstroke and was selected swimmer of the meet as Hamilton College placed ninth out of 11 teams on the third and final day of the 2012 NESCAC championship at Wesleyan University's Natatorium on Feb. 19.

Results

The Continentals ended up with 636 team points. Williams College captured the team title with 1,826 points.

Rosenbaum is the first Hamilton female to receive the NESCAC swimmer of the meet award. Eric Schwenker '02 was the NESCAC men's swimmer of the meet back in 2002.

Rosenbaum's time of 1:59.94 in the 200 back broke her own team record and made an automatic cut for next month's NCAA Division III championships. She has swept all six backstroke events her first two years in the NESCAC championship.

Megan Gibbons '12 took first place in the 100 freestyle with a time of 51.50 seconds. Gibbons' time of 51.43 seconds in the preliminary heats tied her own program record and met an NCAA provisional cut. The 100 free was her second win at NESCACs. She finished first in the 50 free in 2010.

Rosenbaum, Gibbons, Allie Reeder '14 and Joanie Burton '13 led the 400 free relay to fourth place with a time of 3:32.73. The performance met a provisional cut and just missed the team record of 3:31.64.

Diane Paverman '13 finished fourth in the 3-meter springboard diving event with 409.65 points. Paverman was fourth in the 1-meter board on Friday.

Sarah Izzo '15 ended up fourth in the 200 back preconsolation final with a time of 2:11.98, and Lizzy Buhl '12 was fifth in 2:12.51.

The Continentals host a Last Chance Meet for NCAA championship qualifying on Saturday, Feb. 25.
