Notre Dame junior Emma Reaney set an NCAA Division I and American record in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:04.34 Saturday night at the ACC Women’s Swimming and Diving Championship in Greensboro, N.C.

“It still hasn’t sunk in yet,” Reaney said. “I didn’t hear or know anything (about the NCAA and American record) until my assistant coach gave me a hug and told me. It was definitely a shock to the system.”

Reaney won a total of three gold medals at this year’s ACC Championship, set league records in each event (1:54 in the 200 individual medley and 58.46 in the 100 breast), and was named the ACC Championship Most Valuable Swimmer.

Virginia won its seventh straight ACC title with a total score of 1,433 points. Notre Dame finished in sixth place with 802.
