Drury grabs narrow lead after Day 1

2015 DII Swimming & Diving Championship: Day One Recap

INDIANAPOLIS -- Boosted by a national record-setting effort in the final event of the evening, the 200 medley relay, the Drury women's squad has snagged a narrow early lead after the opening day of the NCAA Division II National Swimming & Diving Championships at the IUPUI Natatorium Wednesday night.

The two-time defending champion DU women have 128 points after Day One, leading second-place Queens (123) by five. Wingate is third with 67, Nova Southeastern fourth (57) and UC-San Diego (51) to complete the top five of the 25 schools that earned points on Wednesday.

The highlight of the night for both DU squads was the 1:40.09, new NCAA Division II-record time put up in the 200 medley relay by Katya Rudenko, Zuzanna Chwadeczko, Vera Johannson and Wen Xu to close the evening. It broke the old record of 1:40.45 set by last year's Drury four, including Rudenko.

Other top performances for the DU women included a second place by Allie Reynolds in the 1000 Free, as she shaved nearly 15 seconds off her previous career best, finishing in 10:00.31, with freshmanMegan Ouhl finishing sixth in the same race; and a second and fourth from Xu and Wai Ting Yu in the 50 Free.
