FRESHMAN (2011-12): Nikki Daniels led a strong group of freshman breaststrokers her freshman year. She had the top 100 and 200 breaststroke times of the year for Arkansas, with her 1:01.64 at the SEC Championships and her 2:14.04 at the Tennessee Invitational, both NCAA ‘B’ Cut times. Daniels earned 10 top three finishes on the season, all in breaststroke events. She was impressive in the first meet of her career, clocking 2:16.67 in the 200 breast to place second in the season-opening meet against national powerhouse Auburn. Daniels followed with another impressive performance against a top team, placing second in the 100 breast against Florida with a time of 1:03.00. She finished first in the 100 breast at the Rice Invitational, clocking 1:04.23, and was also first in the 200 breast against Vanderbilt with a time of 2:17.36. Daniels placed second in both the 100 and 200 breast against Penn State and Navy, and second in both events later in the season against Kansas. Daniels swam the breaststroke leg for the 200 medley relay team that clocked 1:42.18 for the fourth-best time in school history, and also for the 400 medley relay teams that finished in 3:42.00 and 3:42.67 for second- and fourth-best in the Arkansas record books. In addition to her prowess in the breaststroke, Daniels swam the 200 IM at four different meets throughout the course of the season.

Daniels, a breaststroke specialist, was honored as an All-American all four years at Wichita Northwest, including First-Team All-State honors her sophomore and junior years. She was the state champion in the 100 breast her sophomore, junior and senior years, and was state champion in the 200 IM her senior year. Daniels holds school records in the 100 breast, 100 fly, 100 IM, 200 medley relay, and 400 free.

PERSONAL: Nicole Marie Daniels was born June 11, 1993 in Wichita, Kan. to Bob and Debbie Daniels. She has one older brother named Bobby, and has an interest in art. Daniels chose Arkansas because of the coaches and team, and because she liked the UA campus.
