Through five events at the 2011 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships, the Big Red women sit in second place with 103 points after eight All-American performances on Wednesday night from the Allen Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn.

Denison trails only first-place Emory who leads the field with 162 points.  The Big Red hold a 13-point advantage over third-place Williams and are 27 points in front of fourth-place, Kenyon.

DU's best finish on Wednesday night came in the 200 medley relay where Maddie Armitage, Ksenia Golovkina, Victoria Masney and Morgan Nuess placed second with a time of 1:41.94.  The relay came down the the anchor leg where Emory's Claire Pavlak posted a 22.62 split to edge Nuess.

In the opening race of the championship, DU landed two in the top-8 as sophomore Alyssa Swanson posted her eighth All-American swim in eight opportunities with a fourth-place time of 4:52.23.  Following in eighth place was junior Hilary Callen who touched in 4:58.91.  For Swanson, her swim was an over four-second improvement over last year's time which landed her in ninth place.

In the 200 individual medley Denison tallied 29 points to keep pace with the Eagles.  First-year Natalie Lugg placed fifth with a time of 2:04.13 to log the first All-America certificate of her career.  She was followed in the A-Final by Emily Schroeder who took eighth place in 2:04.57.  In the B-Final, Brenna Broadus finished 14th overall.  Schroeder's backstroke split of 29.69 was the only sub-30 second backstroke split in the race.

The 50 freestyle saw Golovkina finish eighth with a time of 23.72 while Nuess placed 14th in 23.86.  That marked the 14th All-American swim of Golovkina's career.  Her performance in the 200 medley relay later in the night would run her career total to 15.

The Big Red will return on Thursday with preliminaries scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and finals that will commence at 6 p.m.  Prelims and Finals can be watched live on ncaa.com
