Shenandoah, Texas – Gustavus Adolphus senior Jenny Strom (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) capped Friday of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships with a 12th place finish in the 100 breaststroke after touching the wall in 1:03.76. Strom moved up one place and improved on her prelim time of 1:04.08, earning All-America Honorable Mention honors with her performance.

“I was proud of how Jenny swam tonight,” said Head Coach Jon Carlson. “She swam a smart race and that will give her a lot of confidence heading into her best event [200 breaststroke] tomorrow.”

Heading into the final day of the NCAA Championships, Gustavus sits in 11th place with 71 points.

The Gusties will make a push for the top ten in what will be their most important day of the meet on Saturday. Katie Olson (Sr., North Oaks, Minn.) and Kate Reilly (Fy., Hastings, Minn.) will begin the day by taking part in the 100 freestyle. Hayley Booher (So., Warren, Vt.) will then swim the 200 backstroke, followed by Strom in the 200 breaststroke. The Black and Gold will then cap the meet with the 400-free relay where Michelle Campeau (Fy., Rochester, Minn.), Leah Anderson (Jr., Apple Valley, Minn.), Reilly, and Olson will team up.

“The team knows it’s a big day tomorrow,” Carlson said. “The women realize what’s at stake and are focused on the task ahead of them. They are relaxed and in a good mental state so tomorrow should be fun day of swimming.”
