In 1986, Hollins opened the Mary Moody Northen Swimming Center and began a new chapter on the excellence of intercollegiate athletics at the university. Today the pursuit of excellence continues, with many milestones of outstanding swims marking the way. Two Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) championships and the selection of the entire team to All-Academic Team status set the pace. Kat Horton's ('97) wins in the NCAA Division III National Championship 100 and 200 butterfly were other high points along the way. In addition, team members continue to be selected for All-ODAC honors and academic honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association.
