COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Another record was reset Saturday at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships as sophomore Samantha Maxwell went 2:09.62 in the 200 Breast to etch the Notre Dame standard in the event. The swim placed her in 11th place and gave the Irish enough points (19) for a 31st-place finish at the championships hosted by Texas A&M at the Student Rec Center Natatorium.
It was the second time in as many days that Maxwell set an Irish record after breaking the 100 Breast mark on Saturday.
Natalie Stitt, who was making her NCAA debut, was 32nd off the 1-meter board with a 245.30.
