NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships
Date: Thursday, March 21-Saturday, March 23
Location: IU Natatorium/IUPUI Sports Complex, Indianapolis, Ind.
Time: 11 a.m. / 7 p.m.
Coverage: ESPN3 Live Stream (March 22-23, 6 p.m. CT)
ESPNU Tape Delay (March 27, 7 p.m. CT)

Nebraska swimming and diving team member Taryn Collura will travel to Indianapolis, Ind., for the 2013 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships held March 21-23. She was the lone Husker to qualify for the meet and the first for the Huskers since Lauren Bailey, who competed in three events at the 2007 NCAA Championships.

Collura, a sophomore from Phoenix, Ariz., qualified after setting a new school record in the 50-yard freestyle at the Big Ten Championships. Her time of 22.42 seconds bested Therese Alshammar's previous record of 22.58 seconds set in 1999.

Although Collura's time of 49.45 seconds in the 100-yard freestyle missed the selection cut by just 45 hundredths of a second, it was good enough to earn her an alternate spot in the event at the NCAA Championships.

The NCAA Championships will have sessions beginning at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day, with live streaming available on ESPN3 for event finals on Friday and Saturday evening. Collura will compete in Thursday morning's session, looking to advance to the evening's finals.
