Davidson Women’s and Men’s Swimming and Diving teams competed at the A-10 Championships in Geneva, Ohio.


GENEVA, Ohio — Shelby Stanley won her third individual title — and her second straight Atlantic 10 Most Outstanding Performer Award — Saturday to lead the Davidson swimming and diving teams on the final day of the A-10 Conference Championships at the SPIRE Institute.

In her latest splash, Stanley captured gold in the 200 fly to earn her fifth medal of the four-day meet. Earlier, she won the 100 fly and 200 IM in school- and league-record times and also earned silver with the 200 free relay team and bronze on the 200 medley relay.

Saturday, she swam the 200 fly in 1:59.35, helping the Wildcats wrap up fifth place in the 11-team competition.

Meanwhile, Abby Francis added a podium finish for Davidson, taking third in the 100 free (49.86).

Sylvia Stewart-Bates took fourth in the 1,650 free in 16:50.94, and the 400 free relay team of Julia Goodhead, Francis, Marissa Lassell and Chalé Jacks took fifth (3:24.48).

Anna Newman added eighth-place points in the 200 breast (2:18.09).

Ben McClain secured another medal Saturday to lead the Davidson men, who wrapped up fourth in the eight-team standings.

A day after winning the 200 free, McClain took bronze in the 100 free with a time of 44.83.
