Spider Swim & Dive 2010-11 A look back at the 2011 Atlantic 10 Champions and Richmond Hall of Fame team

The 2011 Atlantic 10 Championship ended just like it began - with a record breaking Richmond relay victory. With a total of 757 points, the Spiders won the crown for the ninth time in 10 seasons.

Richmond's 177-point margin of victory was largely in part to the Spiders' sweep of all five relays.

It didn't stop there as Richmond swept the individual awards as well. Lauren Hines was named the Most Outstanding Performer while Mali Kobelja won Most Outstanding Rookie Performer. Head Coach Matt Barany was tabbed as the Coach of the Year.

The 400 free relay team of Lauren Hines, Mali Kobelja, Mina Vucic and Charlotte Brackett, clocked a time of 3:21.10 - which was four seconds clear of the field and broke the two-year A-10 mark, which was Richmond's record.

Jessie Krebs cruised to a win in the 1,650 free with a time of 16:32.80 - just .72 seconds shy of the A-10 record and 11 seconds clear of the field. Her time crushed the previous school record by 13 seconds, and her split at the 1,000 mark was 9:56.55, a school record.

Brackett took down another A-10 record as she won the 100 free (50.12) and broke a seven-year old record. Kobelja took the 200 breast stroke title as she touched the wall just three-tenths of a second ahead of her competitors. In the 200 back stroke, Hines and Nicole LePere were second and third, respectively.
