Emily Hyde, Amherst ’16 and a CCS alumna, posted what is currently the nation’s fastest time in the 200 IM, setting the tone for the Amherst women’s swimming and diving team on the first day of the 2013 NESCAC Championships in Brunswick, Me.
Already handing in Division III’s best 200 IM time during the prelims (2:04.01), Hyde outdid herself in the evening session, breaking her own mark and both the championship and pool records in the process (2:03.15). Hyde later teamed up with Emily Swett ’13, Sarah Conklin ’16 and Katie Vincett ’13 on the 400-yard medley relay, which set a new meet and program record with a ‘B’ cut time of 3:46.58.
The Lady Jeffs will be competing at the NCAA National Championships in Houston, March 20-23.
Emily is the daughter of Lee Heintz of Vernon and Jim Hyde of Wells and the granddaughter of Jim and Bonnie Hyde of College St. and Bob and Maureen Pritchard of Martin Rd.
