SHENANDOAH, Texas - Junior Jenna Hayden capped off an amazing season and concluded competition at the 2017 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships on Saturday where she swam her last and final race in the 100-yard freestyle.

In the prelims competition, Hayden earned a time of 52.42.

The junior also earned times of 57.03 in the 100-yard freestyle and 57.18 in the 100-yard breaststroke earlier this week at Nationals.

Hayden was named the 2017 NEWMAC Women's Swimmer of the Year last month and crowned NEWMAC champion in the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke while tallying All-Conference nods and numerous record-breaking performances throughout the season and at the NEWMAC Championships.

She became just the fifth Lyon to compete individually for Wheaton at the NCAA Championships.
