Myers, a junior from Oxford, Ohio,  was a two-time individual champion in the NCAA Championships last week, and also was part of two championship relay teams and finished second and third in two other individual events. She won the 400 and 200 Individual medleys and was part of Arizona's 400 Free relay that set U.S. Open, NCAA, pool and school records at the meet.
