St. Thomas Approved for Historic Move from NCAA Division III to Division I
SWIMSWAM
July 15, 2020 — The University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., has been approved by the NCAA to transition from Division III to Division I . While we’ve seen programs (UCSD, for example) make the switch from Division II to Division I , this will be the first transition from Division III in modern history. St. Thomas will become the first private D-I university in the state of Minnesota, and the second D-I school overall, joining the University of Minnesota. This news comes just over a year after the school was told it would be ‘involuntarily removed from membership’ from the Minnesota Interscholas ...

NCAA Vote: D-I Winter Sports Athletes Will Not Receive Eligibility Relief
SWIMSWAM
March 30, 2020 — The NCAA Divison I Council has voted to grant a year of eligibility to Division I student-athletes who compete in spring sports after a mass cancellation by the organization in early March, but it did not approve the same relief for winter sports athletes. That means athletes who compete in swimming and diving – which are winter sports – will not get another year. Women’s water polo players are among those who will receive an extra year. “Winter sports were not included in the decision,” the NCAA said in its announcement . “Council members declined to extend eligibility for student-a ...

WATCH: David Fitch Beats NCAA D3 Record With 46.83 100 Fly With Flip Turns
SWIMSWAM
March 13, 2020 — While the time may never enter the official USA Swimming or NCAA results database, Kenyon junior David Fitch gave a taste of what could have been on Friday. Swimming at Kenyon’s intrasquad time trial being held this weekend to give their NCAA Championship qualifiers some closure on a canceled season, Fitch posted a 46.83 in the 100 yard fly. That’s a lifetime best for him and undercuts his NCAA Division III record of 46.92 done at last year’s NCAA Championship meet. For Fitch, who last year won national titles in both the 100 fly and 100 back, the swim officially b ...

When 72 Points Vanished in One NCAA Final: The Infamous Medley Relay of 2007
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 5, 2020 — The NCAA Championships is one of the most intense competitions a swimmer might compete in, and falls just short of the U.S. Olympic Trials in terms of the cut-throat attitudes of the athletes and coaches vying for titles and a spot in history. First place in a relay at the NCAA Championships will earn a team 40 points, while eighth place is worth 22 points–2 points more than an individual victory. Needless to say, there is a lot of pressure to perform well on relays. The stage was set for the final of the men’s 200 yard medley relay at the Men’s 2007 NCAA Championships. 32 men on 8 t ...
