Andrea Bolognesi became GW men's swimming and diving's first All-American at the 2016 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Friday for his performance in the 100-yard breaststroke.
In the preliminaries, Bolognesi set a new program record with a time of 52.06 to finish fourth overall and earn a spot in the championship final. In the evening session, the Cuveglio, Italy, native posted a time of 52.51 to finish eighth and earn First-Team All-America honors.
Bolognesi was GW's first participant in the men's NCAA Championships since GW Hall of Famer Tim Champney ('00) in 1999. The junior's 11 points made the Colonials the first Atlantic 10 Conference team to score at the prestigious meet since 1986, when La Salle grabbed one point. Bolognesi led GW to a 33rd-place finish in the team standings, the highest in program history.
