Sophomore Lauren Stinnett earned George Mason’s first Swimming and Diving All-America honor with a fourth-place finish in the 200 butterfly last weekend at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in Austin, Texas. Stinnett finished fourth with a time of 1 minute, 56.87 seconds for the Patriots, who are in just their third year of existence for swimming and diving.

In late February at the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Swimming and Diving Championships, Stinnett dominated in each event she was in and broke several conference records. All five events Stinnett competed in at the CAA Championships she set conference records. She set four individual record times, while also helping the 200- and 400-medley relay teams to conference records.
