SHENANDOAH, Texas – After day one action at the 2015 NCAA Division III Championships, the Amherst College women's swimming and diving team sits tied for sixth overall out of 32 teams.
The Jeffs, led by Emily Hyde '16, posted 34 points on the day alongside NYU. Emory is currently in first place with 135.50 points followed by Denison (124) in second and Kenyon (95) in third. Williams and Johns Hopkins round out the top five with 94 and 68 points, respectively.
Hyde, the 2014 champion in the 200-yard individual medley, fell short of defending her crown but still finished within the top three as she touched the wall in 2:03.09 to claim third-place.
The junior wasn't finished as she joined Sabrina Lee '15, Sarah Conklin '16 and Ashleigh Stoddart '15 in the 200-yard medley relay. The quartet finished ninth overall, and first in the consolation final, with a time of 1:43.36.
Amherst returns to the pool tomorrow with trials beginning at 10 a.m. and finals starting at 6 p.m.
