CLINTON – Hamilton College freshman Maggie Rosenbaum finished first and was crowned a national champion in the 100-yard backstroke at the 2011 NCAA Division III men's and women's swimming and diving championships at the University of Tennessee's Allan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn., on March 25.
Rosenbaum is the first Hamilton women's swimmer to capture an NCAA title. Diver Cady Kashner (2003) won the 1-meter springboard at the 2003 women's championship. Rosenbaum joins Kashner and track and field standout Maggie Hanson '02 (indoor 5,000-meter run in 2001) as the only female individual national champions in any sport at Hamilton.
Hamilton is coached by T.J. Davis, a 1989 Norwich High School graduate. He is the son of Tom and Mary Davis of Norwich.
