Two school records set at Mizzou Invite

A stunning 1-2 domination of the 200 individual medley highlighted FIU's first day at the Mizzou Invite hosted by, naturally, the University of Missouri.

Junior Johanna Gustafsdottir and senior Sonia Perez Arau took the top two spots on the podium in the 200 IM with times of 1:58.27 and 1:58.65, both of which beat Gustafsdottir's school record of 1:59.14, set at the 2012 Sun Belt Championships.

Gustafsdottir began the night by leading off a school record performance in the first final of the night, the 200 freestyle relay. Gustafsdottir, freshman Jennifer Alfani, junior Courtney VanderSchaaf and junior Klara Andersson got home in 1:33.58, edging the 1:33.99 by Andersson, Valeriia Popova, VanderScaaf and Marina Ribi in February at the Sun Belt Championships.

The 18-year-old Alfani's already the fourth fastest butterflier in FIU history after blowing out a 55.89 in finishing 10th. Andersson whipped off a 23.48, just .24 off the school record she set at last year's Sun Belt meet. Alfani cranked a 23.41 in the prelims Thursday afternoon.

The 400 Medley relay -- Gustafsdottir, Andersson, Alfani, freshman Jennifer Deist -- finished seventh in 3:46.28. Senior diver Sabrina Beaupre finished seventh in the 3-meter diving.

Good stuff, DJN. Good for the swimmers! I'm not used to reading Beaupre finishing 7th in anything her whole career.
