  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers freshman swimmer Kelly Harrigan (Bristol, CT) has been named an honorable mention All-American by the NCAA following her successful showing at the 2003 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Auburn, AL.

    Harrigan placed 10th in the 200-yard backstroke event with a time of 1:57.45. She swam the event’s preliminary session in 1:56.87. With the honor, she becomes the first female swimmer in Rutgers’ history to earn All-American honors as a freshman.

    Harrigan broke the school and BIG EAST record in both the 100-yard (1:56.02) and 200-yard backstroke (54.55) in her first season of collegiate competition. Besides the two backstroke events, she also participated in the 500-yard freestyle competition at the NCAA Championships.

    Scholastically, Harrigan was a five-time Connecticut High School Open Champion while also having great success as a NISC All-American and a Senior National Championship Qualifier.

    The women, under the direction of 2002-03 BIG EAST Coach of the Year Chuck Warner, placed 37th at the NCAA Championships.
