COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The Colorado State Rams got off to a hot start at the 2017 Mountain West Swimming & Diving Championship, setting a pair of school records in relays at the Texas A&M Natatorium. 

Eight Rams combined across two relays to put their names in the CSU record books. 

The 200 medley relay record was not quite a year old, having been set at last season's MW Championship in College Station. The two last legs of the relay were the same as last season (Karin Roh, Katie Kicklighter), but was led off by two newcomers to the leaderboard in the event - Tonicia Thomas and Jenna Beaury. The foursome beat the previous mark by .34 seconds, with Kicklighter touching the pad in 1:40.24.

The record in the 800 free relay had been sitting longer, with the top mark having been set in February of 2009. Teagan Griffith, Ida Donohue, Gabby Morley and Haley Rowley eclipsed the seven-year-old record by .27 seconds, finishing in 7:22.46. Rowley's anchor leg was completed in 1:48.74, the third-best anchor in the event.

"They approached the day with the right attitude," Woodard explained. "They were loud and excited on the blocks, excited when they touched the pad."

Woodard believes his team, which ended the first day in seventh place, can use today as momentum for the next three days of the event.

"They know they're faster now than they were at mid-season," Woodard said. "They can look at their splits and see how they compare favorably. They are pumped, and can take the confidence into their individual events and their top swims."

The 1-meter dive final also occurred on Wednesday, with Emily Williams scoring a 228.75 and Nicole posting a 222.75.
