Coyotes Set 2 Records At Day 2 Of Summit Swimming Championships
ROCHESTER, MICH. - The women’s 200 freestyle relay and senior Terry Rolfe set school records to lead the South Dakota swimming and diving teams at Day 2 of the Summit League Championships Thursday in Rochester, Mich.

Both Coyote teams are in fourth after the second day of competition.

The Coyote women’s 200 freestyle relay—consisting of senior Lizz Hoffman (Eureka, S.D.), junior Kaitlyn Jefferson (Westland, Mich.), freshman Corey Wannamaker (New Berlin, Wis.) and freshman Torie Buberl (Stillwater, Minn.) – set the new school record with a time of 1:35.77 and placed third. That broke the school record of 1:36.60 in 2006.

Rolfe (Newcastle, Wyo.) shattered the Coyote men’s 200 IM record with a time of 1:51.59, beating a record that stood for nine years. Matt Lind set the previous record of 1:53.21 in 200. Rolfe, who barely missed qualifying for the championship final in the preliminaries earlier in the day, finished ninth in the event.

The Coyote women, who are just 25 points out of first after the first two days of competition, got a runner-up finish from Hoffman in the 50 freestyle. She took second at 23.47, just .11 seconds out of first. She was just .23 seconds away from the school record Stacy Bjorlie set in 2007. Jefferson was sixth in the race at 24.12, followed by Wannamaker in seventh at 24.30.

Senior Janine James (Cheyenne, Wyo.) had a top-five finish in the women’s one-meter diving with a score of 226.05, with sophomore Megan Chmielewski (Shakopee, Minn.) taking sixth at 214.50. Sophomore Linay McCrady (Savage, Minn.) was eighth in the 500 freestyle at 5:06.55.

The Coyote men are within striking distance of third-place IUPUI, trailing the Jaguars by just 19.5 points. The South Dakota men’s 200 freestyle relay led the way with a runner-up finish, with a time of 1:24.15. That consisted of senior Thad Stoddard (Douglas, Wyo.), Rolfe, freshman Blake Frederick (Lincoln, Neb.) and senior Dane Van Arkel (Colorado Springs, Colo.).

Van Arkel was sixth in the 50 freestyle at 20.91, with Stoddard taking eighth at 21.25.

The third day of competition is set for Friday in Rochester, Mich.
