Lady Flames swimmers and divers win second CCSA championship

February 24, 2019 : Liberty University Athletics

Liberty University's women's swimming & diving team scored a conference record 1,859.5 points and ousted four-time defending champion Florida Gulf Coast University (1,668) to win the 2019 Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) Women's Swimming & Diving Championships, for the second time, on Saturday at the Liberty Natatorium.

The Lady Flames, who became the first CCSA school to host the four-day meet, captured their second CCSA title five years to the day after their first championship in 2014.

Liberty finished the meet with program records for podium finishes (27) and event wins (10) at a CCSA Championship meet.

Senior Alicia Finnigan became the first Lady Flames swimmer to win one event (the 200 butterfly in 1:56.61) in three separate CCSA Championships and set a program record with 10 career podium finishes.

Ninth-year Liberty head coach Jake Shellenberger was voted CCSA Women's Swimming Coach of the Year for the third time and second-year diving coach Tori Wood was voted CCSA Women's Diving Coach of the Year.
