Just two months into her first semester, Megan Monahan ’17 was already making waves at Sweet Briar. She was named ODAC Honorable Mention Swimmer of the Week three times this fall and earned the title of October Vixen of the Month, following five record-breaking performances.
After breaking the 200-yard backstroke school record at her first swim meet, Monahan set three more school records during Homecoming and Families Weekend in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference meet, leading Sweet Briar to a win over Greensboro College. Another record followed a week later.
“I was not expecting to swim that fast, but it was a nice surprise,” she said. “I could not have done it without the support from the swim team and the wonderful coaches.”
