WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Day two of the 2010 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships began Friday at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center on the campus of Purdue University. The Tigers qualified two relays and a diver to the evening's final events.
"It wasn't our morning," head coach Brett Hawke said. "The team struggled individually, but we're hoping to make up for it in our relay events."
The morning started out with the 200 medley relay and saw the Tigers clock the 10th-fastest time of the meet. The team of Melissa Marik, Micah Lawrence, Ava Ohlgren and Hannah Riordan finished in 1:39.00.
Sophomore diver Vennie Dantin reached her first-ever NCAA finals, qualifying for the consolation finals on the 3-meter springboard. Dantin finished 16th in the prelims with a score of 311.80.
The 800 free relay will swim a timed final tonight. Auburn qualified 15th overall with a time of 7:09.58.
Finals are set to start at 7 p.m. EST with the 200 medley relay and is followed by the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, 3-meter diving and 800 free relay.
