HolmbergNCAA

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Catawba sophomore Sebastian Holmberg (Akersberga, Sweden/Skolan) earned All-America honors on Thursday at the 2015 NCAA II Swimming & Diving Championships at the IUPUI Natatorium.  Holmberg swam to a fourth-place finish in the 100 fly.

His finals swim of 46.73 was the second fastest 100 fly in school history, behind only his own record at last month’s Bluegrass Mountain Conference Championships where he posted a time of 46.51.

Holmberg swam his opening 50 in 21.28, which was just .05 seconds off his record.  Both of his finals times bettered his prelims time, which were a 21.60 start, and a 47.25 time for the 100.  He was fifth in the morning prelim.

Queens’ Mathew Josa won the event with a time of 44.89 to establish a new NCAA II record.  Gianni Ferrero (46.54), of Grand Valley State, and Soren Holm (46.69), of Wayne State, finished just ahead of Holmberg.

Holmberg is back in action on Friday, as he will compete in the 100 back.  He has the 10th fastest seed time in the field.
