2013 NCAA Championship - Men's Swim

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 32. The Lords earned their 32nd national title this weekend in Shenandoah, Texas, beating out Denison University by almost 50 points. The Ladies took second in the championship, beating out other powerhouse schools including Denison, Williams College, and Johns Hopkins University. That’s the big news of the week, but more on what the rest of our teams were up to below!

I’m back again and live from the C.T. Branin Natatorium in lovely Canton, Ohio, bringing you all of the action from the final evening of the North Coast Athletic Conference Swimming and Diving championships. Heading into tonight, your Lords and Ladies both are in second place behind Denison University, and Anna Dunlavey and I will be here as the Lords and Ladies try to catch the Big Red.
