CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The No. 22 Virginia men’s swimming and diving team has qualified nine swimmers for the 2014 NCAA Championships, which will be held March 27-29 in Austin, Texas.
The Cavaliers will be represented by seniors Parker Camp, Jan Daniec, Nathan Hart, Jack Murfee and Brad Phillips, juniors Kyle Dudzinski and David Ingraham, sophomores Yannick Kaeser and Luke Papendick. Virginia also qualified four relays. This group joins junior diver JB Kolod, who qualified for the national meet after winning the 3-meter diving event at the NCAA Zone A Championships on Monday (March 10).
Camp, a four-time All-American with UVa relays, qualified in an individual event for the first time. Daniec, a 2011 honorable mention All-American in the 500 free, will compete at the national meet for the third time, while Ingraham, Murfee, Papendick and Phillips have qualified for the second year in a row. Dudzinski, Hart and Kaeser will make their NCAA meet debuts.
Papendick, the 2013 ACC Freshman of the Year, earned honorable mention All-America honors last season after winning the consolation final in the 200 back, to finish ninth overall.
The Cavaliers finished fourth at the 2014 ACC Championships, where Phillips (1,650 free) and Papendick (200 back) each picked up individual conference titles.
Virginia’s highest-ever finish at the NCAA meet was eighth in 2011.
A total of 235 swimmers from 57 different schools qualified for the national meet.
