West York High School graduate Bradley Strathmeyer concluded a sensational freshman swimming season at West Chester University over the weekend.
Strathmeyer earned All-America recognition in three different events at the NCAA Division II Championships in Birmingham, Ala.
On Saturday, he placed third in the 1,650-yard freestyle on the final day of the competition in 15 minutes, 28.66 seconds. That followed a third-place finish on Friday in 500 free in 4:24.74. Both those finishes exceeded his seeding position. He was seeded No. 5 in the 1,650 free and No. 11 in 500 free.
On Thursday, he took seventh in 1,000 free in 9:14.57. He was seeded No. 8 in that event.
A swimmer must finish in the top eight to earn All-America status.
Strathmeyer helped West Chester finish 18th overall at the NCAA Division II meet with 65 points.
Strathmeyer's time in the 500 free shattered the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference record set by former West Chester swimmer Andras Schonek.
Earlier this season, Strathmeyer was named the PSAC Swimmer of the Year after winning the 1,650 free, the 1,000 free and the 500 free at the PSAC Championship Meet. He helped West Chester win its 15th-straight PSAC men's swimming title.
