Mallory Comerford Wins National Championship
In the midst of March Madness the Louisville women's swimming and diving team finished sixth at the NCAA Championships in Indianapolis, coincidentally where men's basketball is currently at.
Highlighted by Mallory Comerford's national championship, which you can read about here, the Cards surprised the country with a higher-than-expected finish. Comerford's national championship made it six straight years that the women's side has had a national champion.
Louisville finished with a point total of 194.5 points, a half point ahead of seventh place NC State. The Cards were the highest ACC team.
