Linda Gallo Earns All-America Honors at NCAA Championships

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- In her first appearance in the NCAA championships, Notre Dame senior Linda Gallo (Colts Neck, N.J./St. John Vianney) placed 14th in the 500-yard freestyle on the first of three days at the NCAA women's swimming and diving championships in Minneapolis, Minn., to earn All-America honors for the first time in her career. She placed 13th in the preliminaries with a time of 4:47.04 to break her school of 4:48.02 which she swam en route to winning the BIG EAST 500-yard freestyle title on February 19, 1998. In the consolation finals, Gallo swam 4:47.35 for her 14th-place finish.

In the preliminaries on Thursday afternoon, the Irish team of Gallo, freshman Carrie Nixon (Ouray, Colo./Montrose), sophomore Shannon Suddarth (Topeka, Kan./Hayden) and junior Brittany Kline (Crystal Lake, Ill./Central) placed 19th in the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:36.04. Nixon then swam in the preliminaries of the 50-yard freestyle and placed 27th with a time of 23.14.

On Friday, Gallo will swim in the 200-yard freestyle while Suddarth and Kline will swim in the 100-yard breaststroke. Nixon will swim in the 100-yard freestyle on Saturday while Gallo will swim in the 1650-yard freestyle and Suddarth in the 200-yard breaststroke. Suddarth earned All-America honors by placing 13th in the 200-yard breaststroke a year ago in the NCAA championships.
