IRVINE, Calif.—Denison University's two-time national champion swimmer KT Kustritz competed at the 2018 Phillips 66 United States National Championships on July 25-29 at the William Woollett, Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine, California.

Kustritz competed in the 50-meter long course breaststroke and the 100-meter long course breaststroke at U.S. Nationals.  She qualified for the finals of the 50-meter breaststroke after tying for 25th in 32.29 seconds.  World-record holder Lilly King (Indiana University) held the top spot after preliminaries in 30.16.  Kustritz swam in the C-Final and finished fifth in her heat and 21st overall with a .02 improvement time of 32.27.

In the 100-meter breaststroke, she placed 45th out of 64 entries after a time of 1:10.95.

Kustritz is coming off a stellar sophomore season at Denison which saw her capture national championships in the 100 and 200-yard breaststrokes.  In the 100-yard breaststroke, she became the first female in Division III history to break the one-minute mark after a time of 59.77 at nationals in Indianapolis last March.  A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, she is a 13-time All-American and the owner of six Denison varsity records as well as the Division III national record in the 100-yard breaststroke.

Denison women's swimming & diving placed fourth in the nation at the 2018 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championship, marking the program's 11th consecutive top-four podium finish at nationals.  Denison swimming & diving has won five NCAA Division III national championships (4 – men; 1 – women).
