In February, UNH swimming and diving captured its seventh America East Championship, its first since 2014, unseating the three-time defending champion University of Maryland Baltimore County. The ’Cats were fueled by the standout performance of Liza Baykova ’18, who won three individual events and swam on two winning relays, set four meet records and won both the Outstanding Swimmer Award and the Dave Alexander Coaches’ Award for highest number of points earned at the championships over her four years. Hailee Miller '18 was named the most outstanding diver, and the Wildcats won 10 of the 20 events comprising the four-day championships. In addition to its 2018 and 2014 titles, UNH also won the America East Championship in 1998, 1999, 2005, 2006 and 2013.
