All-Conference honors for Casha
Andover’s Nysa Casha made the most of her final New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference Swimming and Diving Championships last month for Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
The senior captain was one of several WPI men’s and women’s swimming and diving student-athletes to earn all-conference and/or help combine to set 24 program records at the meet hosted by WPI at its Sports & Recreation Center Pool.
Casha met the NCAA-B standard in the 100 fly, finishing in 57.31. She also joined forces with Marissa Patterson (Hampton, N.H.), Zoe Eggleston (Newtown, Conn.) and Emily Martin (Penfield, N.Y.) to take third in the 200 medley with a time of 1:47.55.
A business major, Casha has spent three years swimming in college, amassing six personal team records, along with three relay records. She is the only woman WPI swimmer to make the NEWMAC All-Conference team two times, in both 2013 and 2015. In 2013, she made school history as the first female swimmer to be a Worcester City Champion.
