Three Auburn seniors went out in style over the weekend, earning All-American honors at the NCAA National Swimming and Diving Championships; which were held at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Washington.
The three swimmers, Karl Krug, Drew Modrov, and Max Murphy, combined for nine All-America honors in the meet. For their careers, Krug finished with eight All-Americas while Modrov and Murphy had four each.
“It’s nice when the seniors can get swims on the final night,” said Head Coach Bret Hawke. “That’s a great way to send them off and let them finish off their careers. I know those guys really put in everything they had tonight into racing.”
As a team, Auburn finished in the top six in the country in the NCAA Championships for the 11th straight year. It also marked the 20th consecutive Top10 finish for the Men’s Swimming Team.
The Tigers will now turn their attention to the long-course season and the upcoming 2012 London Olympic Games. The U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials are set for June 25-July 2 in Omaha, Nebraska.
