Rollo Continues Record Setting Trend at NCAAs

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Washington and Lee junior women's swimmer Emily Rollo (Haddonfield, N.J. / Haddonfield Memorial) clocked in at 1:59.21 to finish fifth in the finals of the 200-yard backstroke, and set a new school and ODAC record at the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships held at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, N.C. on Saturday.

With her fifth-place finish, Rollo garnered First Team All-America accolades for the second time in her career.

Rollo finished sixth in the finals round of the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 55.44 on Friday to earn First Team All-America honors and she placed 15th overall in the 200-yard individual medley (2:05.44) on Wednesday to receive Honorable Mention All-America laurels. Rollo is the first W&L women's swimmer to get All-America accolades three times in the same year since Rebekah Prince '96 in 1996.

First-year Elle Chancey (Tampa, Fla. / Berkeley Preparatory School) competed in the prelims of the 100-yard freestyle. She placed 41st overall with a time of 52.57, which did not qualify for the finals round.

Rollo and Chancey also competed on the 400-yard freestyle relay squad that touched the wall in 3:31.36 and took 24th overall. They were joined by sophomore Cassidy Fuller (Moraga, Calif. / Campolindo) and junior Elisabeth Holmes (Raleigh, N.C. / Needham B. Broughton).

Washington and Lee finished 25th out of 54 teams with 29 total points.

This concludes W&L's performance at the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships and ends the 2015-16 women's swimming season.
