Mitchum Captures Honorable Mention All-America in 200 Back, Athenas Finish 13th

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Jameson Mitchum finished third in the consolation final to take 11th place in the 200 back and earn honorable mention All-America honors for the second time this week, as Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's swimming and diving finished 13th at the NCAA Division III Championships on Saturday at the Greensboro Aquatics Center.

Mitchum swam a 2:01.86 in the evening session, taking .68 off of her prelim time in the morning. Yesterday, she finished 14th in the 100 back after qualifying for the finals in both backstroke events, and ended with honorable mention All-America honors three times, including the 200-yard medley relay (along with Sun Young Byun, Mackenzie Mayfield and Annika Sharma). She also earned first-team All-America honors last year in the 200 back, an event in which she earned SCIAC titles in all three seasons she competed. 

Mitchum's 11th-place finish on Saturday pushed CMS up two spots in the team standings, as the Athenas ended with 74 points to come in 13th place, just ahead of Ithaca with 69 and Carnegie Mellon with 68. 

Augusta Lewis supplied a lot of points in her final NCAA Championship, winning the national title in the 400 IM, and adding a fifth-place finish in the 200 IM and a seventh-place finish in the 200 fly. Emma Ng Pack earned honorable mention All-America honors in the one-meter dive, as did the 800 free relay of Byun, Lewis, Ella Blake and Katy Shaw.  

CMS will look to build off this year's performance next season, although it loses Lewis, Mitchum, Blake and Annie Johnson, who all qualified for nationals this year.
