Below are season-long notes for the University of Arkansas swimming and diving team.
Freshman Drolc Comes Up Big at Missouri
FAYETTEVILLE -Nina Drolc picked up three event wins for the Cardinal and White in dramatic fashion on Friday. To start off the meet Drolc swam the final leg in the 200 medley relay. The Razorbacks were behind and needed a boost, and Drolc did not disappoint as she swam the fastest relay split of her career and was the only swimmer to go under 23 seconds (22.76) as she out-touched the Missouri relay team by three hundredths of a second to take the win in the first race; Arkansas would never surrender the lead in the meet after taking the first event. Drolc later swam a personal best in the 200 freestyle to take the event win for Arkansas with a time of 50.89. Going out of her freestyle element, Drolc took a stab at the 100 butterfly, finishing in fourth and scoring for the UA with a time of 56.56. It was the first time she swam the butterfly stroke this year. Her time of 56.56 was the fastest swum by any UA swimmer all season. In the final event of the meet, the 400 freestyle relay, Drolc led things off for Arkansas as she recorded the fastest leadoff leg with a time of 50.97. Arkansas would win the race with a time of 3:25.02.
