Collura Concludes Season with Victory in Georgia
Athens, Ga. - Taryn Collura swam a career-best time to take home the 100-yard freestyle title and conclude her participation at the University of Georgia's Last Chance Meet on Sunday afternoon at the Gabrielsen Natatorium.
Collura finished the preliminary round of the 100 free in first place with a career-best 49.30, shaving 24-hundredths of a second off her time at last weekend's Big Ten Championships. The sophomore defended her position, swimming a 49.39 in the final to earn the victory.
Despite her career-best time, Collura fell short of the NCAA A-cut time of 47.96 and will see her season come to an end. As a freshman, Collura swam in both the 50- and 100-yard freestyles at the NCAA Championships, finishing 33rd and 56th, respectively.
Shannon Guy also competed for the Huskers, participating in a time trial of the 100-yard breaststroke. The senior swam a time of 1:03.05, missing the career-best 1:02.95 she recorded at this season's Big Ten Championships by ten-hundredths of a second.
Guy also missed the NCAA A-cut time of 59.19, closing out her Nebraska career on Sunday. The 100 fly school-record holder and member of four school-record holding relay teams finished with 60 top-five finishes and 19 victories in four years as a Husker.
The Nebraska divers will take their shot at reaching the NCAA Championships when they head to Minneapolis, Minn., on March 10-12 for the NCAA Zone D Diving Meet. Check back in to Huskers.com for updates, and follow the team on Twitter via @HuskerSwim.
