GENEVA, Ohio -- Drury, who has won four of the last five nationals, captured the 200 medley relay to close the evening and sit in second place with 114.5 points, just behind leader Wayne State (Mich.) (120). Queens (N.C.) is third with 83 points.

"Wayne State is swimming really well and is going to be a contender along with Queens, without doubt," Reynolds said. "[Wayne State] had diving today, and won't tomorrow, so it'll be necessary for us to have a big day tomorrow."

Wai Ting (Janet) Yu finished second in the 50 free in 22.88, just behind winner and senior Ana Azambuja of Wayne State (22.62) and Agnieska Ostrowska was third in the 200 IM to highlight the efforts from the DU women.

Freshman Yakaterina Rudenko, Ostrowska, Yu and Tinsley Andrews made up the winning 200 medley relay group.

"That was Janet's first time she's broke 23 [seconds]," Reynolds said. "She finishes second, and you'd think the kid was going to come over with her head down and all disappointed, but she was grinning ear to ear that she broke the 23-barrier."

Sarah Pullen was fifth in the 1000 free and Rebekah Laupp finished eighth in the 3-meter diving.
