As the Washington College men’s swim team closed out their season placing fifth out of six teams at the Centennial Conference championships, junior Anndrew Feeley defied odds and broke records in his performance.  

During his competition, held at Gettysburg College, Feeley managed to bring home the gold in the 200 backstroke for the third consecutive year, which is also every year he has been in attendance at WC.  

This not only broke WC’s previous school record, but also earned him a spot in the qualifying rounds for the meet.  

In addition to this already record breaking performance Feeley also managed to break the school’s record for the 100 backstroke earning a time of 50.95 which earned him bronze in the competition.  

During this same competition, Feeley was also able to achieve the fastest leg of the 400 medley ever seen at WC at 51.37.

Due to the success Feeley displayed at the Centennial Conference playoffs, he went on to be named to the All-Centennial Conference first team.  This is another honor that Feeley has managed to earn for three consecutive years. 

His performance also earned him Shoreman of the week on the week of Feb. 24 which is the fifth time he has earned this honor.  He has also achieved Goose Nation Swimmer of the Meet four times as well as 2019 Team MVP.  

Feeley has set another WC record by being the first male swimmer from WC to ever be named to the All Centennial Conference first team, let alone three times over.
