FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – The Washington State swimming team finished the first day of the 2014 Pac-12 Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships with 92 points, putting the Cougars in seventh place entering day two.
In the 200 medley relay final, the Washington State relay team of Emma Johansson, Frederikke Hall, Alison Mand, and Nicole Proulx placed sixth with a time of 1:39.45, breaking the previous WSU record of 1:40.22 (set in 2009).
Kelly Tannhauser, Proulx, Elise Locke, and Heather Morlan finished eighth in the 800 free relay, with a time of 7:23.94.
The two relay events were the only events contested Wednesday.
“We broke a school record and really had some great leadership today,” Washington State Head Coach Tom Jager said. “We had some great senior leadoffs in the relays. We are in a great position and had great leadership, so you can’t ask for much more than that.”
The events that will be contested on the second day of the conference championships (Thursday) are the 500 free, the 200 individual medley, and the 50 free. Thursday’s scheduled starting time is 11 a.m., opening with preliminary heats for the 500 free.
