GANSEVOORT, N.Y. - The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released its 2019 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University grabbed five spots on three different teams. GU had four women's swimmers earn all-conference honors.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2019 swimming and diving championships were held Feb. 15-17 and were hosted by Cazenovia College. Gallaudet finished in fifth place with 213 points.

Junior Julia Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.) won the 100-yard backstroke for a second year in a row. She also earned All-NEAC first team honors in the 200-yard backstroke. Miller-Notestone added an all-conference second team honor in the 500-yard freestyle.

Miller-Notestone was a member of GU's 400-yard medley relay that earned All-NEAC third team honors. That team consisted of Miller-Notestone, junior Jessica Monroe (Senoia, Ga.), senior Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas) and sophomore Alyssa Castillo (Fresno, Calif.). Monroe picked up a third-team honor in the 200-yard butterfly.

Cazenovia College won its fifth straight conference title with 595 team points. Wells College was a distant second with 476 points followed by Cedar Crest College (470 points), SUNY Cobleskill (229) and Gallaudet (213).

Cazenovia senior Jenni Uplinger was honored as to 2018-19 NEAC Women's Swimmer of the Year. SUNY Cobleskill's Katie Noncarrow was honored as the 2018-19 NEAC Rookie of the Year. Cedar Crest coach Charlie McDonald was selected as the 2018-19 NEAC Women's Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year.
