MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Razorbacks swam in three events to open the 2014 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Thursday at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn. The three-day competition will run through Saturday. Razorbacks are participating in a record 13 events over the course of the championship meet. 

Senior Nicole Menzel (Hilton Head, S.C.) led off for the Razorbacks with a 32nd-place finish in the 500-yard freestyle, recording a season-high time of 4:44.19. She was followed by sophomore Anna Mayfield (San Antonio, Texas) in 39th place with a time of 4:44.81. 

Junior Susanna White (Forest, Va.) represented Arkansas in the 50 freestyle and finished in 35th place with a time of 22.56. The finish was the second-fastest in Arkansas history.

Arkansas ended the day in the 400 medley relay. The team of Mayfield, junior Nikki Daniels (Wichita, Kan.), White and sophomore Maddie Monroe (Godfrey, Ill.) posted a 3:37.60 to claim 25th place overall. The time clocked in as the fifth-fastest in program history.
