Colley helps UNC swimmers to best NCAA championships finish in 3 years

Lafayette High graduate Ben Colley helped his North Carolina men’s swimming and diving team to an 18th-place finish Saturday at the NCAA championships in Iowa.

It was the Tar Heels’ first top-20 finish since 2012.

Colley, a junior, earned All-America honors in the 200-yard butterfly (14th, 1:42.54) as well as the relay teams he competed on on the first day of the event, the 400-yard medley team (14th, 3:08.02), and the 200-yard freestyle relay (15th, 1:18.09.).
