Oklahoma Christian University swimming concluded their 2022-23 season with accolades for both teams.
Back in January, the men and women traveled to Springfield, MO, where the men took on the nation’s top team, Drury University.
The men swept the relays, winning the 400-medley relay, 200-freestyle relay and 400-yard freestyle relay.
Victor Rosado won the 500-yard freestyle, Noah Rabb won the 400-yard individual medley and Brandon Heredia won the 50-yard freestyle to bring their first-place finishes against the team to eight.
The women left Springfield with four first-place finishes of their own.
At the RMAC Conference Championships, the Eagles broke three school records.
Heredia broke the 100-yard freestyle record with a 43.76, J.T. Amerin broke the 200-yard breaststroke record with a 1:56.05 and the men posted a 2:55.61 in the 400-yard freestyle relay.
Wins like these are not unusual for the Oklahoma Christian swim program. Back in September, the men and women combined for 13 meet records at the Sam Freas Invitational hosted in Edmond, OK.
In October, they raced against Division I opponents like Southern Methodist University and the University of the Incarnate Word and earned 11 top-3 finishes. In the Eagle Invitational, they made11 school records and 22 meets.
Victor Rosado reflected on the season, raving about the work ethic across the entire program.
“I want to feel terrible each and every practice,” Rosado said. “I want to feel comfortable being uncomfortable.”
Rosado said he also sees a lot of motivation in the swimmers at Oklahoma Christian. The string of broken records and first-place finishes is a reflection of the hard work they have been putting in since early August.
Qualifiers are deep into preparing for the NCAA Division II Championships, beginning on March 8 in Indianapolis, IN.
