SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Feb. 23)-The New Mexico State swimming and diving team opened the 2011 WAC Championships with a pair of new school records. The Aggies are tied for second place with 62 points after the first two events.


The Aggies collected a second-place finish in the 200-medley relay with a school record time of 1:41.63. The relay team of freshman Terrin Seaver, senior Alannah Lawrence, sophomore Beth Cate and senior Kelly Conrad also set a NCAA B’ cut with the performance.


“It was a great start tonight for us,” head coach Rick Pratt said. “Both relays were school records and we had some good splits. The 800-free field was very fast and a couple of our legs swam nervous races. Alex Fenton was the highlight on the 800-free relay splitting a 1:49.5.”


NM State concluded the first day of competition with a fifth-place showing in the 800-free relay. The 7:26.99 mark broke the program record with a strong effort from Cate, Seaver, sophomore Alex Fenton and junior Brittney Moore. 

“We’ve got lots of racing to come with only two down, but what a great way to start,” Pratt said.


The Aggies continue the WAC Championships, Thursday, Feb. 24.
