Rosenbaum '14 places 5th in 100 back at NCAA meet
Hamilton College's Maggie Rosenbaum '14 finished fifth in the women's 100-yard backstroke at the 2014 NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships on March 21.
Rosenbaum earned the eighth All-America honor of her Hamilton career for her performance. Anyone that finishes in the top eight of any individual or relay event at the NCAA championships is an All-American. The championships are being held at the IU Natatorium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
Rosenbaum posted a time of 55.16 seconds in the evening's championship final after her time of 55.46 seconds was also fifth-fastest in the morning's preliminary heats. Celia Oberholzer '15 of Kenyon College defended her national title in the 100 back with a time of 54.33 seconds.
The race featured the event's last three NCAA champions. Rosenbaum captured the title in 2011 and 2012 and finished second last year to Oberholzer, who set an NCAA record with a time of 53.46 seconds.
Rosenbaum competes in the 200 back on Saturday, March 22, and she is seeded sixth with a time of 2:00.86. She picked up All-America awards for the 200 back in 2012 and 2013 and an honorable mention All-America award in 2011.
