WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's and women's swimming & diving teams had 22 student-athletes, 13 women and nine men, selected to the All-BIG EAST Team following last month's BIG EAST Championships, held at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. The 13 women named All-BIG EAST were the most in the conference.
The All-BIG EAST squad is comprised of swimmers and divers who finished in the top three in any individual or relay event at the championships. In all, 41 women and 38 men complete the list. A total of 50 student-athletes - 25 women, 25 men - earned all-conference for multiple events.
Of Georgetown's conference-high 13 student-athletes who earned All-BIG EAST honors on the women's side, six medaled in multiple events. Molly Fitzpatrick (Manchester, N.H./The Derryfield School), who won both the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke, earned conference honors in four different events. Elizabeth Miller (Wayland, Mass./Wayland), who was named the championship's Most Outstanding Women's Diver, earned all-conference nods in both the 1- and 3-meter dive where she finished first and second, respectively. Riley Fujioka (Los Altos, Calif./Los Altos) was also named All-BIG EAST in both diving events. Cristina Barrett (Chatham, N.J./Chatham) broke the school records in both the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyles to earn all-conference honors. Lauren Henasey (Newtown, Pa./Germantown Academic) and Belinda Donohoe (Cambridge, Mass./Concord Carlisle) both were two-time recipients in relay events.
On the men's side, nine different Hoyas received All-BIG EAST selections, with four earning nods in multiple events. Drew Carbone (Chelmsford, Mass./Central Catholic), who was named the championship's Most Outstanding Male Swimmer, earned all-conference honors in four events including the 200-yard IM and the 200-yard backstroke, where he won gold, and the 100-yard backstroke, in which he took silver. Ryan Blom (Hershey, Pa./Milton Hershey) and Griffin Edmonds (Norwalk, Conn./New Canaan) each earned all-conference nods in both diving events, while Andrew Stange (St. James, N.Y./Saint Anthony's) was named All-BIG EAST in the 200-yard freestyle and the 800-yard freestyle relay.
