Central Connecticut sophomore Taylor Friedmann was recognized by CollegeSwimming.Com as a Honorable Mention Mid-Major All-American. Friedmann earned the honor based off her performance in the 500 freestyle this season. She becomes the fourth Blue Devil swimmer to be recognized an All-American.
Honorable Mention All-American selections are swimmers who are entered with NCAA 'B' standards, but not selected to the 2011 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. The 2011 NCAA 'B' standard for the 500 freestyle was 4:52.41, Friedmann reached that mark at the 2011 NEC Championships. She took first place in the 500 free with a time of 4:50.57 at this year's championship meet.
Friedmann was the only swimmer from the Northeast Conference to receive this honor in 2011.
Friedmann, who also set an ECAC record in the 200 freestyle this past season, joins former Blue Devil Lindsay Snyder as honorable mention selections. Former Blue Devils Tammie Repass and Jaime Crowley earned All-American honors after swimming at the NCAA Championships.
