On day two of the Southeastern Conference Championships, the Razorback swimming and diving squad topped yesterday’s performance and broke two records in front of over 1,200 fans.

Sophomore Anna Mayfield and junior Susanna White each took down a school record for the Hogs.

Mayfield began the evening by breaking the school record in the 500 freestyle.

White followed that up with the school record she set earlier in prelims by posting a 22.27 in the 50 freestyle to win the B Final.

“They went to work today, but they were only able to do that from the kind of work that they do all year long from Aug. 26 up until today,” head coach Sean Schimmel said. “We talk about allowing that work to show up and this is the stage to let it shine. Those two certainly did that with some highlights there.”

In the B Final with Mayfield, senior Nicole Menzel swam a season-best time.

In the C Final, Lauren Jordan won the heat with a personal-best time of 4:42.95, Australia native Aiden Lister finished with a time of 4:46.44 and sophomore Rachel Stoehr swam a personal-best time of 4:46.70.

“We had five ladies in that 500 freestyle tonight and that’s a pretty big percentage of the people here scoring points in that event. We’re pretty proud of that,” Schimmel said.

The Razorbacks closed out the day with a season best performance in the 200-freestyle relay.

Arkansas’ ‘A’ relay team of White, Drolc, Maddie Monroe and senior Shelby Cox, swam a season-best time of 1:30.54, which was the second best time in school history.

After the second finals session, the Razorbacks find themselves in fifth place with a total of 217 points.
