Lynn Concludes Career at Nationals

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.-University of Arkansas senior Whitney Lynn finished her career as a Lady Razorback at the NCAA Swimming Championships, Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind.

Lynn finished 30th in the 1,650 freestyle with a time of 16:37.27. Lynn also competed in the 500 free at nationals finishing in 48th -place.

Arkansas swimming head coach Anne Goodman James said she was pleased with Lynn’s performance in her final collegiate competition.

“Whitney swam a good mile,” Goodman James said. “She swam very solid splits all the way through and finished very strong.”

Lynn was a two-time all-American for the Lady’Backs. In 2003, the Tulsa, Okla., native received honors in the 500 and 1,650 freestyle events.

Goodman James said that Lynn made quite a contribution to the Arkansas program and she is sad to see her leave the program.

Whitney has had an outstanding collegiate career,” Goodman James said. “She has been such an integral part of our successes over the past four years, in dual meets, SECs and NCAAs. She will be terribly missed.”
