MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Razorbacks concluded competition at the 2014 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday afternoon at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn. The third and final day of swimming was highlighted by a season-best time from senior Nicole Menzel (Hilton Head, S.C.) in the 1,650-yard freestyle to close to meet. 

Menzel posted a season-best time in the 1,650 freestyle, claiming 22nd place in 16:13.30. Menzel shaved 1.84 seconds off her time from the 2014 SEC Championships. 

Sophomore Anna Mayfield (San Antonio, Texas) kicked off the day with a time of 1:55.94 in the 200 backstroke to tie for 36th place. Her swim was followed by a performance from junior Susanna White (Forest, Va.) in the 100 freestyle. White finished the race with a time of 49.07 to place 37th. Junior Nikki Daniels (Wichita, Kan.) represented Arkansas in the 200 breaststroke, placing 18th with a time of 2:09.71, qualifying her as the second alternate for the final. 

The morning session ended with a 25th-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay by White, Mayfield, and sophomores Nina Drolc (Velenje, Slovenia) and Maddie Monroe (Godfrey, Ill.). The team’s time of 3:18.80 registered as the fourth-fastest in program history.

Over the course of the meet, Menzel clocked two season-best times in the 500 and 1,650 freestyle, White’s times in the 100 butterfly and 50 freestyle were Arkansas top-five times and the team registered all four relay swims as top-five times in program history.
