Ohio State’s synchronized swimming team continues to dominate.

The Buckeyes won their 34th national title in program history on Saturday, finishing first at the U.S. Collegiate Championship in Westmont, Illinois. OSU won the event with 95 total team points, while Stanford finished as the runner-up with 92 points.

OSU's title is the second consecutive national championship for the program, and the Buckeyes have won six of the last eight titles.

Senior Nikki Dzurko won the solo national title, the third championship of her career.

Sophomores Emily Armstrong and Ruby Remati defended their duet title, winning for the second straight year. They won the event with a score of 84.6333.

Remati also won the A Figures title with a score of 83.1950, though the event did not factor into the total team score.

OSU coach Holly Vargo-Brown also picked up hardware, winning her sixth career U.S. Collegiate Coach of the Year Award.
