Lobos Sit Seventh After Day 1 of MW Championships

by Frank Mercogliano

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Lobos scored enough points in the 1-meter dive as Hannah Tiendas picked up 14 points with a 13th place finish as she qualified for the B finals, highlighting Day 1 for UNM’s swimming and diving team as UNM is currently in seventh out of nine teams with 103 points.

Nevada leads San Diego State 236-228 as both programs scored big in the 1-meter dive.  UNM trails UNLV by one point for sixth place, and leads Air Force by four points.  Wyoming sits in third, Fresno State in fourth, Colorado State in fifth and San Jose State is in ninth.

Teindas qualified 15th after her prelims in the 1-meter, which qualified her for the B Final.  She had 275.45 points, but bumped that up to 282.15 points, which moved her up two spots.  Alex Robertson just missed the B Final, finishing 17th, scoring nine points.  That gave UNM 23 in the event.

That paired with 40 points in each of the two relays as the opening day saw just three events.  In the opening event the 200-yard medley relay, Maddie Deucher, Jordan Foster, Marina Olmstead and Katy McCarter recorded a 1:43.03, which was good for ninth but was nearly three seconds faster than their seed time entering the race.

In the 800-yard freestyle relay, Laura Benkova, McCarter, Olivia Bishop and Camila Batista came in ninth at 7:30.22.

Thursday’s action will see three prelims in the morning session of the 500-yard free, the 200-yard individual medley and the 50-yard free.  The evening session will see finals in those three events, plus the finals of the 3-meter dive and the 400-yard medley relay.
