Emily Cameron, a 2013 Warwick High School grad, garnered All American Honorable Mention for the University of Georgia women’s swim team in two events at this past weekend’s NCAA Division-One Swimming and Diving Championships in Greensboro, N.C.

Cameron posted a time of 4:07:15 to finish 11th in the 400 I.M. and 1:56.60 in the 200 I.M. for 11th place. Both times represented personal-bests for Cameron. The top eight finishers are named All-Americans, while the 9th through 16th-place swimmers take home Honorable Mention All-American acolades.

Cameron, a seven-time PIAA champion at Warwick, helped Georgia to a second-place finish in the team standings behind the winning squad of Cal-Berkeley, led by Olympian Missy Franklin who will turn her attention to the professional ranks in the month ahead.

Georgia (452 points) had been seeking its third consecutive National championship, but fell just a little short of Cal’s 513 points. Rounding out the top five were Stanford (363), Texas A&M (231) and Virginia (229).

Although Cameron came up just shy of advancing to the B-finals in the 200 breaststroke, she improved her time to a personal-best 2:10.44 while moving up from the 44th seed to 22nd in the preliminary race.
