*sigh*

It’s the end. Every breath you take brings you a second further from Space Basses of the past, and every breath you give brings you a second closer to remembering if Mildred actually hooked up with your crush last night or if she just told you she did to make you jealous.

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. Follow all the action here, or watch the live video stream. We’re about to get underway, and the atmosphere here is already electric, with the cheers of fans and teams reverberating off the walls and creating something like an athletic aquatic twilight zone. Professor Timothy Shutt is at the microphone, the national anthem just rang true, and we’re about to get underway. Stay tuned for live results and commentary!

6:40 p.m.: The internet just went out, and in that time the first event of the evening, the women’s 1650-yard freestyle, began, with 3 Ladies participating: Mariah Williamson ’16 in lane 4, Syd Lindblom ’14 in lane 5, and Kiersten Bell ’13 in lane 6. More after the jump.
