DeWames Wraps Up NCAA Championship With 100 Free

AUBURN, Ala. – Junior freestyler Marisa DeWames wrapped up her trip to the 2012 NCAA Women's Swimming Championship Saturday by finishing 42nd in the 100 freestyle at Auburn University.
DeWames’ time of 49.65 placed her ahead of 28 other competitors in the race. DeWames was again the top Western Athletic Conference finisher in her event, beating Alie Schmidtke of New Mexico State who finished 57th.
“I couldn't be more proud of Marisa and couldn't be more proud of Spartan swimming and diving, ” said San Jose State head coach Sage Hopkins. “We've had a tremendous season.”
DeWames is the first San Jose State female swimmer to participate in the NCAA Championship since 2008 (Brie Marhenke), and only the third swimmer to do so since 1986 (Marhenke; Charlotte Pierce, 2000).
"We made school history in terms of the (program's) first WAC championship, school records, and its been a tremendous year," said Hopkins.
