COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State University finished in 22nd place at the 2010 NCAA championships that concluded Saturday at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center. Florida won the team championship by 2.5 points over Stanford with California, Arizona and Georgia in third-place through fifth, respectively, and all within 40 points of Florida’s 382 points.
Ohio State’s three swimmers were each in the pool to complete their 2010 NCAA experiences Saturday. Senior Megan Alexander, from Worthington, Ohio, closed out her collegiate career by finishing 28th in the 200 breaststroke in the time of 2:12.91.
Two swimmers who will look to return to NCAAs next year accompanied by more of their teammates also wrapped up with their third and second swims of the meet. Junior Samantha Cheverton, from Lachine, Quebec, was 25th in the 200 backstroke in 1:55.66.
And freshman Shannon Draves, from Gilbertsville, Pa., capped a terrific freshman campaign by placing 23rd in the 200 butterfly in 1:57.55. Her NCAA swims are on top of her swimming in two finals at the Big Ten championships and setting school records in both butterfly events, including a record-setting 53.54 time in the 100 fly in the Friday preliminaries here at the NCAA championships.
