TUCSON, Ariz. – The Arizona women’s swimming team completed night two of the NCAA Championships in 10th place in the team standings on Friday inside the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.
The big story of the day for the Wildcats was that they were without the services of sophomore All-American Bonnie Brandon as she hit with a stomach bug early this morning. Brandon was expected to compete in the 200 free, 200 medley relay and the 800 free relay. The bug has hit a few other members of the squad during the week as well.
The evening started with a third-place finish in the “B” final of the 200 medley relay as the team of Alana Pazevic, Emma Schoettmer, Ashley Evans and Margo Geer touched in 1:37.39. Even without the services of Brandon, the Wildcats posted a season-best time in the event.
The Wildcats also earned points in the 800 free relay to close out the night with a seventh-place finish in the “B” final. Geer, Grace Finnegan, Elizabeth Pepper and Evans clocked in with a time of 7:07.23.
Georgia leads the team standings with 369 points followed by Stanford (297) and Cal (285). Arizona has 84 points following two days of competition.
The final day of the event will begin tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. with prelims of the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly and the 400 free relay. The finals for those events along with the 1650 free will begin at 7 p.m.
