Because I have been highlighting Virginia collegiate teams that have been in the national spotlight lately, here is another one to add to the list:
The UVa women’s swimming and diving team won its third consecutive national Division I championship over the weekend.
Senior Kate Douglass won three individual events in NCAA, American, and U.S. Open record times. She can add those medals to the bronze she won at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
I am aware of how much time in practice and daily workouts college swimmers have to put in, which is true for all sports. Anyone who has the discipline and perseverance to do that, while carrying a full class load, and graduate from a college or university, has a lot going for her.
