LINCOLN, Neb.-- CSU swimming and diving continued its consistently strong performance during Session 5 at the Husker Invite Saturday at Devaney Natatorium. After Day 3 with one day left, the Rams are in third place with a score of 848 points.
The Rams have had top performances all week, and they might be exhausted from swimming practically non-stop for the last three days, but they are within reach of first place, which keeps them motivated.
Rice remains in the top spot with 954.50 points, and North Texas stayed in second place with 896 points.
The 200 Medley Relay team made up of Breann Fuller, Nicole Lynch, Nora Kennedy and Sam Dole finished second with a time of 1 minute, 45.67 seconds. Michelle Price took third in the 400 IM, finishing in 4:31.10, and Briley Ochs finished fourth in 3-meter diving with a score of 260.70 points. Fuller and Price also went 1-2 in the 100 Backstroke with times of 56.60 and 57.72, respectively.
"Every athlete on the team has had a season best in at least one of their events," said Head Coach John Mattos. "That's exactly what we wanted to do. We need to keep our intensity up, keep swimming hard, and charging. Tonight was a particularly good night."
The Husker Invite will conclude Sunday with preliminaries in the morning, and finals in the afternoon. Events will consist of the 200 Backstroke, 100 Freestyle, 200 Breaststroke, and the 200 Butterfly. Platform diving will be in between the morning and afternoon sessions.
