GREENSBORO, N.C. (Mar. 23, 2019) – Senior Brittany Percin (Lake Tahoe, Calif. / Stanford Online) of the Caltech women's swimming & diving team competed at her second and final NCAA Championship meet over the weekend, swimming in three events while closing her prominent championship career in style.
Percin began her week with the 200 Free, coming into the event as the SCIAC's reigning champion. The senior swam a 1:56.55, but anything close to a PR would have had her ranked firmly among the top-20 swimmers in a 45-woman field. Percin then put forth a 2:04.93 in the 200 Fly, just over a second off her best time of the season after entering the event as the 16th-seeded swimmer. The senior's final appearance of the weekend came in the 100 Free, where she broke her own program record by a little more than a tenth of second with a 52.86. Percin also took part in the senior parade in another feel-good moment on the weekend.
Percin finishes her four-year career the most decorated swimmer in the history of the women's program with her name tied to six solo records and every relay record available. Last year, she became the first female Caltech swimmer to qualify for the national meet since 1983 and this year became the only two-time consecutive qualifier in the history of the women's program.
