In their first 2014 NCAA Championship swims today, senior Sonia Perez Arau came in 46th in the 200 individual medley with a 1:59.91. Junior Johanna Gustafsdottir, the Conference USA 200 IM champion, swam a 2:00.15, coming in 51st.
Most of the swimmers were a second or two off their seeding time. Matching her conference record time of 1:57.94 still would've left Gustafsdottir free for the evening -- 1:57.35 was the cutoff for the final.
Friday brings Perez's best event, the 400 IM, and Gustafsdottir goes in the 100 backstroke, from which she was scratched in the conference meet.
