The 2015 CCSA Swimming & Diving Championships continue, with day three under way at Georgia's Gabrielsen Natatorium. Tonight's evening session starts at 6 p.m. with the men's 400 IM B final.

Defending champion Liberty is in second place with 461 points, trailing Florida Gulf Coast, which has scored 626 points. The Lady Flames will have 17 individual finals swims (eight A finals, eight B finals, one C final) and one relay.

Liberty opened the morning with the 400 IM, as Emily Duff swam a season-best 4:24.64 to qualify in fifth for the A final. Sarah Browning qualified for the B final.

The Lady Flames earned four finalists in the 100 fly. Natalie Beale clocked 55.71, a season best, to place fifth, and Kendall Hart will also swim in the A final. Ranndi Grubbs and Danielle Boothe both made the B final for Liberty.

Meghan Babcock's fastest time of the campaign, 1:51.15, qualified her in third for the 200 free A final, while Kristin VanDeventer also had a top-eight swim. Freshmen Ashlee Sall and Rachel Hoeve will be in the B final.

Prudence Rooker placed fourth in qualifying for the 100 breaststroke in a season-best 1:02.92. Rachel Wasko will swim in the B final, while Danielle Boothe will appear in the C final.

Liberty finished the morning session with four finals qualifications in the 100 back. Kendall Hough broke Liberty's existing program record in lifetime-best and NCAA B cut 54.18 to qualify second. Victoria Tschoke will join her in the A final. Natalie Beale and Chloe Thomas will swim in the B final.
