In prelims, she shattered another team record, going 1:55.78 in the 200 butterfly, bettering the previous mark set in 2010 by more than a second. Flora Molnar broke a school record with 48.15 in the prelims of the 100 freestyle, and became the first UA woman under 48 seconds in finals, going 47.98 to earn the win. The Crimson Tide closed out the meet with a school record in the 400 freestyle relay, with sophomores Morgan Scott and Julia Wolf combining with Molnar and senior Allie Surrency to go 3:14.26.

We need to believe and understand that our training is going to carry over into the matches. Right now, we’ve been challenged but when other teams make adjustments and we have to be able to make adjustments to counter that.”
