JHU's Bogdanovski claims 2nd national title at DIII swimming championships

Senior repeats in 200 free for fourth career individual national title

Johns Hopkins senior swimmer Ana Bogdanovski won her second national title in a many days Thursday at the Division III championship meet in Shenandoah, Texas, winning the 200-meter freestyle for the second consecutive year.

Bogdanovski finished in 1:46.69 to win by eight-tenths of a second and claim her the fourth individual NCAA title of her career. A day earlier she won the 50 freestyle for the second year in a row, and she has also contributed to five relay wins at nationals.

JHU's women's team sits in fifth place after two days of the NCAA DIII meet with 73 points, well behind first-place Emory (323.5).

On the men's side, sophomore Evan Holder broke the school record in the 200 free en route to a fourth-place finish. His time in the finals (1:37.77) was just off the school-record pace (1:37.42) he set in prelims.

The Blue Jays are seventh overall in the team standings; Kenyon sits in first place.

The Division III national swimming championships continue through Saturday. Fans can see live results and video online.
