When the Wildcats won the 2008 NCAA championship, Nymeyer, a Mountain View High School grad, won an almost incomprehensible five titles: the 100 freestyle and all four relay championships. She also was second in the 200 freestyle. That summer, she was part of Team USA’s silver medal relay team at the Beijing Olympics and the 2009 NCAA Woman of the Year.
