INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Seniors Noah Nichols (Midlothian, Va.) and Matt Brownstead (Port Matilda, Pa.) both turned in sixth-place finishes to earn first-team All-America honors on the final day of the NCAA Championships at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis.

Brownstead tied for sixth in the 100 free with a time of 41.50. It marked the second time in three years he has been a first-team All-American in the event. He was fourth at the 2022 meet when he swam a school record time of 41.22.

Nichols was sixth in the 200 breaststroke, setting a UVA record with a time of 1:50.69. Earlier in the day he had lowered his own school record in the event when he swam 1:51.22 during the prelims. It was the best finish by a Cavalier in the event since 2005.

Nichols picked up his second first-team All-America honor in the breaststroke after finishing fourth in the 100 breast on Friday.

UVA wrapped up the meet with a 10th-place showing in the 400 free relay. Brownstead, Connor Boyle, August Lamb and Tim Connery posted a season-best time of 2:47.63 that ranks third on UVA’s all-time performance list.

Virginia placed 17th in the team standings, the program’s fifth consecutive top-20 finish at the event.

UVA competitors will return to Indianapolis for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials scheduled for June 15-23. For the first time ever, the event will be staged on a football field, as Lucas Oil Stadium is tapped to host the Olympic-qualifying meet in front of hundreds of thousands of fans over nine days.
