NCAA II Champs!

Our victory jump into the pool!

I’ve been MIA on the blogosphere (and in Springfield in general) this last week because of Division 2 Championships in Birmingham, Alabama. And guess what… Drury men and women won!

In an upcoming blog, I will cover the meet’s specifics through a storify. Until then, let me just say that winning was so unbelievably incredible, especially for the girls’ team. Our key sprinter, Janet, tore her ACL a week before the competition. Cheslea broke her foot/ankle/toe/I-don’t-really-know only a few days before her swims begun. Tiffany was taken off a relay that would have won with her on it. And so on, and so on, and so on. 

We prevailed, despite all that was thrown our way.

And our men’s team exceeded expectations, as usual. They won by over 100-something points. It felt so special to join them on top of the podium, unlike last year.
