2012-2013 UCLA Swimming & Diving Media Guide
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Junior Ting Quah broke her own school record in the 100 Butterfly, sophomore Emma Ivory-Ganja won the B final in the Three-Meter diving event and senior Andrea Reigel bettered her career best in the 400 Individual Medley during day two of the NCAA Championships.
The day began with three UCLA swimmers taking the pool in the 400 IM. Reigel bettered her personal best, which she set at the Pac-12 Championships last month. Her time of 4:10.51 was 17th, which kept her at second on the Bruins' all-time list.
Next up was the 100 Fly, featuring Quah and senior Stephanie Christofferson for the Bruins. In the morning preliminaries, Quah recorded a time of 52.08, the sixth-best mark overall and bettering the UCLA school record, which she set at the Pac-12's. In the final, Quah nearly matched her prelim time with a 52.09, finishing seventh. Christofferson posted a prelim time of 53.46, good for 31st.
In the Three-Meter, Ivory-Ganja reached the B final by virtue of a 330.50 total in her first six dives. The sophomore bettered that total in the final with a consolation-winning mark of 347.00, just 1.75 off her own school record.
In the Bruins' final event of the evening session, the 800 Freestyle Relay squad obliterated the school record set at the Pac-12's. Quah, junior Anna Senko, Tarazona and Reigel posted a time of 7:06.23, shaving more than a second off of the previous best of 7:07.61.
The Bruins are represented in five of seven events on the final day on Saturday. Reigel swims the first Saturday prelim, the 200 Backstroke, which will be followed by the 100 Free, with Quah and junior Kathryn Murphy swimming for the Bruins.
Three are in the 200 Fly, Christofferson, Senko and Tarazona, while Baker swims the final of the 1650 Freestyle. Ivory-Ganja also takes part in the Platform to round out her meet. The Platform, 200 Back, 100 Free and 200 Fly finals begin at 4 p.m. PT.
