Hannah Boudreaux placed 14th in the 400-meter freestyle relay, and Julia Ferreira placed in the top 20 in the 200-meter breaststroke, as the Brenau University swim team ended its season at the NAIA National Championship on Tuesday in Saint Louis.
The Golden Tigers were able to achieve six personal bests, four relay bests and set three school records. Boudreaux placed fifth overall at the meet, while setting a personal best in the 200-meter fly.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to end our trip at nationals,” Brenau coach Blaire Bachman said. “I am so proud of this team.”
