COLLEGE STATION, Texas – On the first day of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, University of Arkansas swimmers Stephanie Carr and Yi-Ting Siow broke school records in the 500 free and 200 individual medley, respectively.In the preliminary session of the 500 free, Carr broke her own school record, placing 29th in the prelims with a time of 4:42.92. Carr’s time was also a career-best.
Swimming in the prelims of the 200 IM, Siow swam an Arkansas and career-best 1:57.82, coming in 18th. Katie Kastes also swam in the prelims of the 200 IM and finished with her own personal best time of 1:59.12 in 35th place.
“All three girls swam fantastic this morning,” head Arkansas coach Jeff Poppell said. “Unfortunately, we did not advance to the night session for the finals of our events, but we can’t be too disappointed with two school records and career-bests from all our swimmers.”
On Friday, the Razorbacks will send Kastes and Jamie Marks to the pool for the 400 IM and Leah Pierce will join Siow in the 100 breast event. Prelims begin once more at 11 a.m. with the finals to start at 7 p.m. at the Texas A&M Student Rec Center Natatorium.
