GREENSBORO, N.C. – University of Notre Dame women’s swimming and diving standout Emma Reaney made a statement to the rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference Thursday night with a dominating performance in the 200 IM as she claimed the first ACC individual championship in program history.
Reaney, who swam a leg of the school-record 200 medley relay team Wednesday night, lowered her own school mark in the 200 IM with an NCAA “A” cut time of 1:54.92 to breeze past the field in 2.26 seconds. The time broke her own ACC record and also broke the ACC Championship meet record that was originally set by Virginia’s Megan Evo (1:56.17) in 2009.
“Emma is just a competitor,” said head coach Brian Barnes. “I wanted her to be at the front of the pack after the first 100 and she did that. At that point she made it her heat. Look at her breaststroke splits. She is the best breaststroker in the conference. It was a fun race to watch.”
