School records fall for eighth-place NU

MINNEAPOLIS — The Nebraska swimming and diving team finished in eighth place Friday evening after its second full day of competition at the Big Ten championships at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.

The Huskers began the fifth session by setting a school record in the 400-yard medley relay. The team of Hayley Martin, Ashley Reiter, Shannon Guy and Ariel Weech finished in a time of 3:39.36, earning them seventh place.

In the 100-yard butterfly, Guy took fifth place with a time of 53.30 seconds. Guy, whose finish was the highest ever for a Husker individual at the Big Ten championships, set a school record of 52.23 seconds during the morning session.

“Shannon stepped up nicely in her first championship final,” Nebraska coach Pablo Morales said. “With the time she swam, she has a shot at making the NCAAs. We’ll just have to wait and see.”

Martin, who set the school record of 53.81 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke Friday morning, finished 11th in the event with a time of 54.55 seconds in the final.

Amy Herman ended up 14th in the 3-meter diving competition with a score of 292.15. The senior was the lone Husker to compete in finals for the event.

The championships will be completed Saturday. Events resume at 11 a.m.

Team scoring: Minnesota 573.5, Indiana 422.5, Penn State 342.5, Ohio State 263, Purdue 238.5, Michigan 221, Wisconsin 195, Nebraska 137, Northwestern 131, Iowa 98, Michigan State 46, Illinois 42.
