In the 100 Breaststroke, McSharry won her third consecutive title, the first SEC swimmer to do so since 2000, stopping the clock at 57 seconds to claim gold and set a new championship record.

McSharry was also part of the Lady Vols quartet that smashed the SEC Record in the 400 Medley Relay with a time of 3:24.92 to claim gold; the Sligo native became only the second woman to go sub-56 seconds in the breaststroke leg of the Medley Relay. McSharry also came away with silvers in the 200 Medley Relay and 200 Freestyle Relay, and a bronze in the 50 Freestyle.

Molly Mayne, representing the University of Florida, was part of the of the Florida Gators Relay team who claimed the 200 Medley Relay gold, finishing ahead of the Tennessee Lady Vols and McSharry. There was double delight for Mayne as the Gators were crowned SEC Champions for 2024.
