It’s all coming down to the final session at the 2014 NAIA National Championships. Oklahoma Baptist is untouchable as the leader, and it looks like SCAD may consolidate its position tonight to repeat as national runner-up. But nothing is certain and ONU, Brenau and Concordia are still jockeying for positions.

Soka University had another good morning, positioning themselves to score points tonight that could improve their standing. Olivet Nazarene had some very strong swims, which will help them as they chase SCAD for second place. Finally The College of Idaho dropped 12 seconds in their 400 free relay to make the championship final to give them much-needed points as they try to distance themselves from Lindsey Wilson.
