Indianapolis, In.-- The University of Mary Washington women's swim team concluded its season today at the final day of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. Seniors Amber Kerico and Jessica Singer each swam their final races in the 200 breast and 1650 free respectively.

Kerico led off the day in the 200 breast. Amber swam a 2:23.54, good enough for 27th place after the prelim runs.

Singer competed in the 1650 free finals, capping her career with a time of 17:12.06, and a 16th place finish in the final heat. With her time of 17:12.06, Singer not only set a new school record, but also a new CAC record in the event, and gained All-America honors for the first time.
