Bangor’s Emma Waddell has been named NCAA Swimmer of the Year after winning two national titles and a second place finish at the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships in Texas.

The junior swimmer for Williams College missed a third national title by 0.17 of a second in Saturday night’s 100-yard freestyle event. Emory College swimmer Fiona¬†Muir won in 49.28¬†and Waddell was 49.45.

Earlier in the week, Waddell won titles in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard butterfly.
