Suddarth, Gallo Earns All-America Honors at NCAA Championships

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Notre Dame sophomore Shannon Suddarth (Topeka, Kan./Hayden), who earned All-America honors as a freshman in the 200-yard breaststroke, duplicated that effort by placing 11th in the 200-yard breaststroke and added to it by earning All-America honors in the 100-yard breaststroke with an eighth-place finish at the NCAA women's swimming and diving championships in Minneapolis, Minn. She advanced to the finals of the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:01.82 and to the finals of the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:13.81, breaking her own school records she set in winning the BIG EAST title in February. Senior Linda Gallo (Colts Neck, N.J./St. John Vianney), who earned All-America honors on Thursday by placing 16th in the 500-yard freestyle, finished ninth in the 1650 freestyle in 16:25.62 to garner All-America recognition once again.

In the 100-yard breaststroke final with the top-eight finishers, Suddarth swam 1:02.05 to place eighth. Notre Dame junior Brittany Kline (Crystal Lake, Ill./Central) joined Suddarth in the 100-yard breaststroke as she placed 25th in the preliminaries in 1:03.88 in her first NCAA championship appearance. Suddarth swam 2:13.47 to break the school record again in placing 11th in the 200-yard breaststroke.

The Irish relay of Gallo, Kline, Suddarth and freshman Carrie Nixon (Ouray, Colo./Montrose) placed 19th in the 200-medley relay. Nixon was 26th in the 100-yard butterfly in 55.80 while Gallo was 40th in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:50.56.
