2010 Swimming All-MIAA

Watson Named All-MIAA


ROYAL OAK, Mich. - Freshman Ellie Watson was one of eighteen athletes named to the 2010 All-MIAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Team.

Watson became just the fifth swimmer in the history of the swimming program to earn All-MIAA honors.  Last weekend at the MIAA Championships, she finished second in the 500 and 1650 freestyle and added a fifth place finish in the 400 individual medley.  Her 5:09.90 in the 500 free set a new school record.  Additionally, her times in the 1650 and 400 IM are among the top five all-time fastest in program history.  

Including her appearances on four relay teams, Watson helped to account for 156 points at the conference championships with 48 of those points coming from her individual finishes.
