DEPTFORD, N.J. -- Kate Fuhrmann put the finishing touches on one of the greatest swimming careers in Union Catholic history with two very impressive performances at Sunday's NJSIAA Swimming Meet of Champions at the Gloucester County Institute of Technology.   

Fuhrmann placed third in the consolation finals of the 100 breaststroke in 1:06.67 to finish 11th overall, and she was fifth in the consolation finals of the 50 free in 24.31 to finish 13th overall. Fuhrmann was the only swimmer at the meet to place in the top 13 in both the 50 free and 100 breaststroke.   

The Pitt-bound Fuhrmann, who lives in Berkeley Heights, will go down as one of the most decorated and dominant swimmers in Viking history.

Earlier this season, Fuhrmann added to her remarkable legacy at the Union County Championships at the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center at Rutgers when she produced two of the best performances of her career.

Despite battling the flu, Fuhrmann still captured her third straight 50 freestyle title with a time of 24.03, which broke her school record of 24.07. Then she came back to win the 100 breaststroke in 1:04.89, which missed the meet record by just .17 and broke her own UC school record of 1:04.97. That gave Fuhrmann four county titles in her career.

Fuhrmann, who helped lead UC to its second straight undefeated dual meet season this winter, also swam a school record 53.40 in the 100 free in the preliminary round of the 2017 Meet of Champions, giving her three school records. Fuhrmann is the only Union Catholic swimmer (boy or girl) who currently owns three individual school records.
