College insider: Funk just misses out on berth in NCAAs Lauren Funk was obviously disappointed about not qualifying for the NCAA Division I swimming championships.
But the Kenton Ridge High School graduate and Ohio University freshman was even more unhappy about the extra days she spent training this week.
“I could’ve slept in and gone to bed when I wanted to,” Funk said.
Funk was a member of the Bobcats’ 200-yard freestyle relay team, which swam an NCAA “B” cut and school-record time of 1 minute, 30.5 seconds during a time trial at the Mid-American Conference championships at Miami University on Saturday, Feb. 27.
When the selections were announced Thursday, March 4, the Bobcats missed out on qualifying by just .01 seconds.
The relay team set the conference, meet and pool marks with a time of 1:30.47.
