ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Bucknell women's swimming & diving team climbed to fifth in the team standings on the second day of the Patriot League Championships at Navy's Lejeune Hall.

Eight Bison qualified for the finals in their respective events to propel their team to fifth from 10th. The highlight of the night for Bucknell was a record-setting performance in the 400 medley relay. With a time of 3:41.48, Emma Hadley, Leah Bloodgood, Lindsay Smalec and Abigail Rosenberg shattered the school record by more than two seconds en route to a second-place finish. 

Three Bison competed in the 200 IM's 'A' finals: Maggie Wyngowski (4th, 2:02.26), Julianna Foss (6th, 2:02.55) and Smalec (7th, 2:03.88). Wyngowski's time was good for third in school history while Foss's would have slotted her fifth if she wasn't already second (2:02.24). Smalec, who timed in at 2:03.75 in the preliminaries, took seventh in school history.

Caroline Edelman (t-13th) and Emily Gorham (16th) both raced in the 'B' finals of the 50 freestyle. Bucknell's other scorers were Tally Ford (10th, 1-meter dive), Abby Merriman (14th, 500 freestyle) and Julie Byrne (15th, 200 IM).

Through 14 events, Navy (338.5), Lehigh (203) and Army West Point (192.5) are the top three teams. The Patriot League Championships continue tomorrow. Preliminaries begin at 10 a.m. with the finals following at 6 p.m.
