Rosenbaum '14 prepares for final NCAA swim championships
Hamilton College's Maggie Rosenbaum '14 (Alford, Mass./Monument Mountain Regional HS) will compete at the 2014 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving Championships from Thursday, March 20, through Saturday, March 22.
The championships are being held at the IU Natatorium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Rosenbaum is making her fourth and final appearance at the NCAA meet.
Rosenbaum swims in the 100-yard butterfly on Thursday, the 100 backstroke on Friday and the 200 back on Saturday. Preliminary heats start each day at 10 a.m. and finals begin at 6 p.m. every evening. She is seeded second in the 100 back with a time of 54.95 seconds, third in the 100 fly in 55.41 seconds and sixth in the 200 back (2:00.86).
One of the most decorated swimmers -- male or female -- in Hamilton history, Rosenbaum is a six-time All-American with two national titles in the 100 back. In 2011 she captured first place in the 100 back, which was the first victory at the NCAA meet by a Hamilton women's swimmer. She repeated the feat in 2012 and added an All-America award for the 200 back. She collected All-America honors for the 100 and 200 back and 100 fly last year. Anyone that finishes in the top eight of any individual or relay event is an All-American.
