A trio of Tri-City SFU swimmers will compete in the 2016 NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships.
The event will be held March 9 to 12 at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
Six swimmers from the Clan men’s team who received invites in five individual events will be competing at nationals, including sophomore Tim Woinoski of Coquitlam.
For the SFU women, locals Lauren Swistak, a junior from Port Moody, and Robyn Lee, a freshman from Port Coquitlam, will also compete.
Woinoski is ranked 13th in the 1,650 freestyle while Swistak comes in as the Clan’s highest ranked female swimmer:
The top 16 swimmers in each event score team points and the top eight receive All-American honours.
In the final meet at Portland last weekend, both the men’s and women’s 800 freestyle relay teams made the “B” standard and qualified for nationals. The women are ranked eighth and the men sixth.
