Swimmer Molly Meyer and diver Sarah Sheridan are hoping for peak performances as they return to the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships.
The 2015 Championships in Shenandoah, Texas, begin Wednesday and run through Saturday. Preliminaries start at 10 a.m. Central each day, while the finals begin at 6 p.m. Central.
Sheridan, Hope's first All-American in both 1- and 3-meter diving and its school record holder in both events, is first to compete for the Flying Dutch.
The 3-meter diving preliminaries are Wednesday after the conclusion of the 200-yard medley relay. Sheridan, a junior from Richmond, Indiana (Richmond HS), finished seventh in the event as a sophomore.
The 1-meter diving preliminaries are Friday. Sheridan placed seventh in the event last year as well.
Meyer, a sophomore from South Bend, Indiana (John Adams HS), is swimming in three events: the 100 and 200 backstroke, and the 100 butterfly.
During last month's MIAA championship, Meyer repeated as league champion in the 100 backstroke while also setting a MIAA and school record in the event with a time of 56.50 points during the leadoff leg of the 400 medley relay.
Meyer also claimed her first MIAA championship in the 100 butterfly.
Meyer competes in the 100 butterfly on Thursday, the 100 backstroke on Friday and the 200 backstroke on Saturday.
