William and Mary swimmer Hannah Vester (Cincinnati, Ohio) broke new ground for the Tribe Sunday morning, competing at the USA Swimming Open Water 5K National Championships in Castaic Lake, Calif.  The rising sophomore is the first active Tribe swimmer to ever compete in the national open water championships.  She finished 32nd overall, with a time of 1:09:36.59.

Complete Results

Vester qualified for the championship event thanks to her outstanding, freshman record performance in the mile at the the CAA Championships.  She finished seventh overall in the 1,650-yard race back in February with a time of 16:52.88, which ranks her second overall in school history.  Vester's 1,000-yard split of 10:13.17 ranks her fourth all-time at W&M.  Earlier in the conference meet, she placed 15th overall in the 500 free, and her prelims time of 4:56.57 ranks her sixth in school history.  Her first all-conference award came in the 800 free relay, where she helped the Tribe finish third in 7:20.80, the second-fastest time ever.
