MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. --- Colby College’s Kelsey Potdevin (Juneau, Alaska) placed 25th in the 200-yard backstroke at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday at the University of Minnesota.

Potdevin, a senior, finished her collegiate swimming career with a time of 2:06.74 in the event.

Potdevin had just earned All-American honors on Friday night by placing eighth in the 100 backstroke. The 50 backstroke is her best race, but the NCAA meet does not run that event.
