LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego swept all seven end-of-season honors from the Pacific Collegiate Swimming & Diving Conference (PCSC) for NCAA Division II programs in the league.
The UCSD women placed fifth at the 2014 NCAA Division II Swimming & Diving Championships, which took place in Geneva, Ohio, March 12-15. The men were seventh for the second year in a row.
Senior co-captains and national champions Nicholas Korth and Anji Shakya were tabbed as PCSC Swimmer of the Year on the men's and women's sides, respectively. Korth finished his career the way he started it, winning the 200 breaststroke with an NCAA Division II and school record-breaking time. With five more All-American swims this year, he completed his career as an 18-time All-American. Shakya was the only other Triton to win a national championship this season, beating the competition in the 500 freestyle. She was a six-time All-American at her final NCAA meet, and finished her career as a 19-time All-American.
Luke Calkins and Allyson Cohen are the men's and women's 2013-14 PCSC Divers of the Year. Calkins swept the one-meter and three-meter springboard diving events at the PCSC Championships, as well as earning All-America honors in three-meter diving at the NCAA Championships with an eighth-place showing. Cohen won her first PCSC championship on one meter.
Corrie Falcon is the PCSC Women's Coach of the Year, while Matt Macedo earned Men's Coach of the Year distinction. The awards are the second each for the Triton co-head coaches, who both just completed their third seasons in charge. Falcon's team finished with 26 All-Americans, while Macedo's squad finished with 14. The Triton men and women each wrapped up their sixth successive PCSC titles in February. Michelle Casillas was named the PCSC Diving Coach of the Year for the third straight season, qualifying four divers to nationals, and finishing with three conference champions and one All-American in Calkins.
