School Record Falls At NCAA Championships
March 21, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UNLVRebels.com) -
UNLV set a new school record on Thursday morning in the first day of action at the 2013 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships. The three-day meet, which continues on Friday before concluding on Saturday, is being held at the IU Natatorium.
In their only event of the day, the Rebels just missed out on reaching the scoring heats at night, placing 18th in a new program-best time of 3:36.35 in the 400 medley relay. That tops the previous record of 3:36.37 that was set in February's Mountain West Championships. Swimming on the relay were seniors Carmen Robb and Nakayla Chan and juniors Katelyne Herrington and Rachel Dixon. They finished .20 seconds out of a top-16 spot. Robb's leadoff time of 52.72 on the backstroke leg also set a new UNLV record, breaking her previous mark of 52.78.
Georgia leads the team standings with 163 points after the first day, while Tennessee is second (150.5) and Arizona third (127).
