INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Competing on swimming's biggest stage, Colorado State's Breann Fuller finished 24th in the 100 Backstroke Friday morning at the 2013 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.
Fuller's time of 53.26 was the second-fastest in CSU history, only behind her own Mountain West record time of 52.92 during the 2009 MW Championships. The senior was eight places—42-hundredths of a second—away from qualifying for the finals and reaching All-America status.
Fuller's place was CSU's best individual finish at the NCAA Championships since Kristen Schneider finished 19th in the 200 Backstroke in 2004. Fuller entered the weekend 37th in the nation in the 100 Backstroke, finishing 13 places higher than predicted.
The Brighton, Colo., native will compete in the 200 Backstroke Saturday, where she ranks 31st nationally. Prelims begin at 9 a.m. MT. Live stats can be viewed here. The top 16 times will again advance to the finals, which will begin at 5 p.m. MT and can be streamed on ESPN3.com.
Fuller is a two-time NCAA Championships qualifier, finishing 48th in the 100 and 200 Backstroke events in 2009. At CSU, she holds five school records and is a four-time MW champion.
