Caitlin DeNise, Brittany Rojo, Alyssa Tenney, Madison Hauanio, Makila Schuck, and Kamaehu Alboro will represent Cal State East Bay womenÕs swimming at the 2014 NCAA Division II National Championships in Geneva, Ohio. The six Pioneers will compete at the mid-March competition after the program sent four swimmers to last yearÕs meet.
ÒI think it is an important achievement to send two more than we had last season. I am excited that five of the six have eligibility remaining at East Bay for the 2015 season,Ó praised East Bay Head Coach Ben Loorz.
All five Cal State East Bay relays finished within the provisional qualifying mark to be considered for the NCAA Championship meet. The selection committee took the nationÕs top-11 times in all five races. The Pioneers times were strong enough in the 200-yard freestyle relay, 400-yard freestyle relay, and 200-yard medley relay.
