IOWA CITY, Iowa -
University of Wyoming senior swimmer Adam Kalms wrapped up his season and historic Cowboy career with the 100 freestyle on the third day of the NCAA Championships in the University of Iowa Recreation and Wellness Pool in Iowa City, Iowa on Saturday. Kalms finished 34th in his final race as a Cowboy.
"I thought he came out okay and he gave it a good run early, but he didn't have that second gear that he normally has," head coach Tom Johnson said. "I know it's not how he wanted to end his career, but I'm so proud of his efforts this week."
Kalms swam a 43.38 in the race to finish 34th in the 56-swimmer field. He finishes his historic career with the Cowboys as one of three Pokes to make appearances in three NCAA Championships. He was also a two-time All-America honoree in the 200 freestyle earning the accolades in 2013 and 2014. He owns five school records and is a part of four relay records at UW.
"Adam has raised the expectations of our swimmers and I will be forever grateful of what he has done for this program," Johnson said.
He also finished 34th in the 100 freestyle at last season's NCAA Championships with a time of 43.74.
