LAS CRUCES, N.M. (May 2)-The New Mexico State swimming and diving team was honored when senior Alannah Lawrence, junior Maria Spies and freshman Tricia Kiss were named to the CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major All-America Honorable Mention Team.
“It is nice for our swimmers to be recognized on this list,” Aggie head coach Rick Pratt said. “With a team record of five NCAA ‘B’ cuts this year, along with 10 school records, it is satisfying to show the progress our program has made.”
In her first conference championship meet, Kiss became the first Aggie to earn the WAC Freshman of the Year award in school history. She won her first title in the 400 individual medley (4:16.62), which was also a NCAA ‘B’ cut.
