INDIANAPOLIS (denverpioneers.com)  A pair of Denver swimmers earned All-America honors at the NCAA Swimming Championships. Senior Amanda Sanders (200 breaststroke) and sophomore Bailey Andison (400 IM, 200 IM) collected three All-America award combined.

For the second-consecutive season, Andison earned All-America honors in the 200 IM on Denver's opening day of the 2017 NCAA Women's Swimming Championships at IU Natatorium in Indianapolis. Andison finished 13th with a school-record time of 1:55.21, shaving more than a second off of her preliminary time of 1:56.26. 

Andison followed that performance by earning All-America honors for the second-straight night, this time smashing her previous school record by over two seconds in the 400 IM prelims (4:04.84) to qualify for the A-Final on Friday at the 2017 NCAA Women's Swimming Championships at IU Natatorium in Indianapolis. 

Andison followed up her prelims performance by breaking her eight hour old school record again, this time by 1.75 seconds, touching fifth in the A-Final with a time of 4:03.09, also good for fifth overall. 

Meanwhile, Sanders finished her final collegiate meet in style, earning All-America honors in the 200 breast on Saturday at the 2017 NCAA Women's Swimming Championships at IU Natatorium in Indianapolis. Following a 2:09.57 in the prelims on Saturday morning, Sanders clocked in at 2:09.74 in the B-Final Saturday night to earn a 15th-place finish in the event.
