Huskers Finish Thursday Competition at Big Ten Championships

By NU Athletic Communications
The Nebraska swimming and diving team finished up its first full day of competition on Thursday evening. Though the Huskers didn't have any individual swimmers competing in final rounds, the Huskers were still well-represented in the 200-yard freestyle relay and the 1-meter diving competition.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Ariel Weech, Hayley Martin, Rebekah Land and Kelly Dunn finished the event tenth at 1:32.78. That time was just 1.72 seconds off of the school record time of 1:31.06 set in 1998 by Helene Muller, Beth Karaica, Anna Windsor and Therese Alshammar.

The 1-meter diving event saw Payton Michaud finish fourteenth individually at 283.90. NU's Alyson Ramsey (22nd) and Kaitlan Walker (27th) round out the top-30 divers.

One Meter Dive Results:
14th - Payton Michaud, 283.90
22nd - Alyson Ramsey, 258.30
27th - Kaitlan Walker, 253.25
