The Navy swimming and diving teams showed their dominance at last week’s Patriot League Championship, earning a league-best 24 All-Patriot League honors based on individual event performances.

The Navy women’s team extended its record for the most titles won by any league team in a single sport to 21, as they won their 11th consecutive league title. The Navy men’s team also continued their impressive streak by winning their 19th consecutive league title in as many years of competing at the meet.

The All-League teams are determined by individual event results and point totals during the championship. The first and second teams consist of 18 members each, with more added if there are any ties. Individual event champions automatically earn first-team recognition, while the remaining first-team positions are filled based on point totals. Second-place swimmers and divers not on the first team are placed onto the second team, which is rounded out by the next highest point tallies.

Each Navy team had six members named to the first team and six to the second team. Lauren Walsh from Navy’s women’s team was recognized for winning the 200 breaststroke event and tied for third place with 54 individual event points. Joining her on the first team was Cameron Horner, who won the 200 freestyle title.

Additional first-team honorees from Navy’s women’s team were Sarah Eldridge, Gabi Baldwin, Tiffany Shields, and Caroline Irwin. The men’s team had four members win individual events during the championship. Jonah Harm was named the swimmer of the meet for winning the 100 fly title for the second year in a row. Blakeman Shaw won both the one and three-meter events to earn the diver-of-the-year accolade. Everet Andrew won the 200 free and Patrick Colwell placed first in the 200 fly event.

Jackson Schultz and Zach Stump were also named to the men’s first team. The full list of All-League honorees is as follows:
