????????????COLUMBUS, Ohio ?C?The Arizona womenˇ?s swimming program continued its assault on the record book on the second day of the NCAA Championships at the McCorkle Aquatic Center at Ohio State on Friday.

????????????Leading Auburn by 99 points (321 to 222) after seven events, the Wildcats finished the day by breaking the NCAA championship meet record in the 800 free relay. The eighth-seeeded team of Schlnutz, Nymeyer, Vorster and Baughman surprised the field with the victory and eclipsed Calˇ?s year-old mark for the championships, touching in a time of 6:58.69.
