(CHARLOTTE, NC)- Queens University has finally made its mark in athletics.

For the first time in the school’s 158 year history, a national championship was brought back to campus last month. But it’s how the Men’s and Women’s swimming teams each for to Championship contention, that makes these two titles so special.  

In just five years, Head Coach Jeff Dugdale went from starting a brand new program to creating national champions. Players said Dugdale always preached that in five years Queens would be national championship contenders, and he was right!

Both the Queens Men’s and Women’s teams knocked off Division Two Swimming power Drury last month in Indianapolis. The Panthers had won 10 straight titles on the men’s side, and six of eight on the women.
