EWING (January 27, 2018)—The Rowan University women’s swimming & diving team claimed the 2017-18 New Jersey Athletic Conference Championship with a 220-77 victory at rival TCNJ on January 27. The win gave the Profs their second straight conference title and their 11th overall in program history.
Due to the fact that the NJAC does not conduct a championship meet in the sport of women’s swimming & diving, the conference title is awarded to the team with the best record in conference dual-meet competition. Rowan claimed the league crown by going undefeated (5-0) in conference meets for the second straight season.
The Profs opened the season with three conference victories during a three day span after defeating conference newcomer Kean (142-55), William Paterson (184-51) and Ramapo (209-52) on November 9, 10 and 11 respectively. Sixty-seven days later after a break for exams and the holidays, Rowan claimed its fourth NJAC win with a 201.5-98.5 victory over Montclair State on January 13, before clinching the league crown two weeks later at TCNJ.
The two-time defending NJAC Champion Profs will open their 2018-19 season riding a nine-meet conference winning-streak including victories in 12-of-their-last-13 NJAC competitions.
