Shaw, Medley Relay Earn Second-Team All-America Honors for Athenas Swim and Dive

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Katy Shaw (500-yard freestyle) and the 200-yard medley relay for the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's swimming and diving team each qualified for the evening session at the NCAA Division III Championships to earn second-team All-America honors on Wednesday at the Greensboro Aquatics Center.

As a team, CMS earned six points, three each from the 500 free and the medley relay of Annika Sharma, Mackenzie Mayfield, Sun Young Byun and Madeleine Kan, to stand in 24th place after the first day of nationals. 

Shaw broke five minutes in both the prelims and the consolation final, earning 15th place to take All-America honors for the first time. It was a 13-spot improvement from a year ago, when she came in 28th place. 

The medley relay team qualified for the evening session by swimming a 1:44.19, and took over two-tenths of a second off that time in the consolation final, finishing in 1:43.97. Byun had the fastest butterfly split in the heat with a 24.83. 

CMS will be back in action tomorrow for the second day of the NCAA Championships, which will feature Allyson Yao in the 400 IM, Kan, Byun and Mayfield all competing in the 100 fly, Shaw and Corley Smith in the 200 free, and Meilan Uyeno in the one-meter dive.
