On this day 30 years ago, the Army women’s swim team won a 3rd consecutive MAAC Conference title behind a superlative effort from Ann Marie Wycoff ’85.
Wycoff set a MAAC record in the 200 butterfly (2:07.31) on the meet’s final day, one day after breaking her own meet record in the 400 individual medley (4:31.87). Wycoff then aided the 400 medley relay team to a meet record time of 4:04.45 in front of a record crowd of over 3,000 spectators in Philadelphia.
For her efforts, Wycoff was named the meet’s Most Outstanding Swimmer.
Later that season, Wycoff would add to her haul of five Division II NCAA Championships by winning four more, setting a championship record in the 400 IM and almost single-handedly leading Army’s team of eight to a 4th place finish. She earned the meet’s Outstanding Swimmer award for the second straight year, finishing her Cadet career as a 19-time All-American, the most decorated individual in Army history, and the winningest swimmer in Division II history.
