Live Blog Coverage from CCSA Championships
The Liberty swimming team enters day three on Saturday at the 2012 CCSA Swimming and Diving Championships in second place, with 378 points. Three-time defending champion Florida Gulf Coast leads the women's competition after two days at Gabrielsen Natatorium.
On day two, Liberty posted eight top-three finishes, two conference records, four program records, three NCAA B cuts and two event victories. Freshman Jess Reinhardt set a new conference record to win the 100 fly, in an NCAA B cut 53.18, while Bethany Wakeley placed second in a lifetime-best 54.72.
Freshman Laura Day took first in the 100 breaststroke, swimming a personal-best 1:01.45, good for an NCAA B cut. Emilie Kaufman, who took third in finals of the 100 breaststroke, clocked a B standard swim and conference-record 1:01.04 in qualifying.
Brye Ravettine (55.68) and Emily Duff (55.72) took second and third, respectively, in the 100 back, while Cori Gary (1:50.73) tied for third in the 200 free. Liberty's 800 free relay placed second in a program-record 7:27.97.
This morning, Liberty will have entrants in the 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 200 fly and 1,650 freestyle.
