The Hollins swim team posted a second consecutive winning season during the 2012-2013 campaign, the first time in school history the team has achieved this distinction. The 7-6 dual meet record came in the face of fierce competition in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), and Hollins swimmers broke an astonishing 30 varsity records this season.
Maggie Dwyer '14, Sage Otto '13, Claire Webber '16, Grace Iaquinto '15, Catie Asip '16, and Meg O’Brien '15 each received Hollins Student-Athlete of the Week honors. Webber was named All-ODAC Second Team and Asip became the first female diver in ODAC history when she competed on the one meter board at Division I VMI.
In addition, the team met its goal of earning Scholar All-American honors from the Collegiate Swimming Coaches Association for the fifth consecutive year.
The momentum achieved from all these accomplishments will propel the Hollins swim team into the highly anticipated 2013-2014 season.
The 2011-12 Hollins swim team’s season began strong and finished even stronger. The squad was young and hungry to leave their mark, and leave their mark they did!
The team finished the season with a 9-6 overall record. During most seasons, a winning record would be considered a huge success. However, this squad was not satisfied with just winning meets - they wanted to be one of the best teams in Hollins history. With a grand total of 27 varsity records broken over the course of the season, it is safe to say they are.
The Hollins swim team was a true force against both ODAC and non-ODAC opposition this season. Outside the conference the squad took on five scholarship programs and the schedule was great preparation for the ODAC’s tough competition. This determination helped Maggie Dwyer '14, Sage Otto '13, Audrey James '15, and Meg O’Brien '15 each earn Hollins Student-Athlete of the Week honors. Dwyer also received ODAC Honor Roll mention twice during the season and she capped off a spectacular year when she was named First Team All-ODAC.
This talented squad is not going away any time soon. The team loses only one swimmer to graduation and the experience gained during this outstanding season will be a benefit in the years to come. The Hollins swim team has a bright and exciting future ahead with the promise of even greater success.
