SCIAC 2017 All-Conference Honors: Women's Swimming and Diving

SCIAC 2017 All-Conference Honors:  Women's Swimming and Diving

The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Confernce announced the 2017 Swimming & Diving All Conference awards as the leagues nine head coaches voted upon the Athlete, Newcomer and Coach of the Year while the All-SCIAC recipients were based on performance at the SCIAC Championships. 

Senior Ellie Jaques was named the Athlete of the Year after taking the SCIAC title in both the 200 IM and 400 IM. Her 2:05.71 was the winning mark in the 200 IM while she touched in 4:28.50 in the 400 IM. Those times earned her a second consecutive trip to the NCAAs where she will also swim the 200 Breast as an optional swimmer with a seed-time of 2:21.48, which landed her second at the conference final with a school-record effort. The senior also swam on three third place relays (800 free, 200 medley, 400 medley). 

Crawford made an immediate impact for the Athenas as she claimed six SCIAC titles in her first appearance which were the most by an individual at the SCIACs this year. The freshman set a CMS and SCIAC meet record while winning the 50 yard freestyle in 23.34. She won the 100 yard backstroke and placed second in the 100 yard freestyle.  Jocelyn also swam key legs in four championship relays, anchoring the NCAA qualifying 200 yard medley relay in 22.98, leading off the 400 medley relay with a 100 yard backstroke time .04 faster than her winning individual title as well as swimming quick legs on the victorious 200 and 400 yard freestyle relays. 

Griffiths and his staff guided the Athenas to a SCIAC dual meet record of 8-0 on the season and the 2017 SCIAC Championship taking the title by 296 points. It marked the 18th overall title for CMS as the Athenas had five swimmers qualify for NCAAs and five divers qualify for regionals. Divers Mary Lynn Clark, Nia-Renee Cooper, Jacquelyn Desmond, Carli Lessard and Maia Presti will represent CMS this weekend at Grinnell College while Jocelyn Crawford, Claire Bacon-Brenes, Elizabeth Carrade, Stephanie Doi and Kelly Ngo will travel to Shenandoah, Texas for the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships from March 15-18.
