Day 1 Recap:
NORFOLK, Va. -
Day one of the 2013 CAA Swimming and Diving Championships took place on Wednesday at the Jim McKay Natatorium in Fairfax, Va. In day one, the Old Dominion University swimming team set one conference record, two school records and had one swimmer make the NCAA "B" cut.
Vitor Sa, Ben Hansen, Carter Watson and Sidni Hoxha compiled the men's 800 free relay team which finished in third place with a time of 6:34.80. That Monarch time set a new conference and school record; however, GMU and W&M finished just ahead of ODU. Mason's second place time (6:34.34) was a fingertip quicker than the Monarchs. William and Mary's men's relay team won this event for the third consecutive year by posting a time 6:32.12, which broke the old conference record by over three seconds.
During the men's 800 free relay, Vitor Sa was first in the water for the Monarchs and swam his 200 free in 1:37.87, which is fast enough to make the NCAA "B" cut.
Kimberley Rashleigh, Savannah Bowers, Yesim Giresunlu and Morgan Johnson set a new school record and finished the 800 free relay in 7:23.17, which earned them a fourth place finish. During this race, Rashleigh set a new school record in the 200 free with a time of 1:47.63.
In 200 medley relay, an Old Dominion team made up of Andrew Crockett, Edward Hubert, Francisco Byrne and Ben Leach placed sixth (1:31.63); while the UNCW relay team set a new conference record (1:27.40).
The Lady Monarchs team consisting of Kimberley Rashleigh, Laura Cempel, Jessica Hubert and Juliana dos Santos took seventh in the 200 medley relay (1:43.52); while the JMU relay team set a new conference record with a time of 1:40.41.
Kady Holland scored 154.35 in the 3-meter preliminary diving competition.
Tomorrow's preliminary and final events will include: the 500 free, 200 IM, 50 free and the men's one-meter diving competition. The 200 free relay finals will also take place tomorrow night. Preliminaries will begin at 10 a.m. and finals will start at 6 p.m.
