Day 1 results are here, and day 2 results are here.
Kansas won every swimming event but one on day one, including the first relay of the day, a 200 medley where Haley Bishop, Bryce Hinde, Yulduz Kuchkarova, and Pia Pavlic swam a 1:43.96 to win the race nearly two seconds ahead of the competition. The Jayhawks went on to win the 400 free relay on day two as well, when Bishop, Haley Molden, Breonna Barker, and Kuchkarova teamed up for 3:29.46 to finish three seconds ahead of the Iowa State squad.
One of Friday’s big individual victories for the Jayhawks came from sophomore Madison Straight, who posted a career-best 1:52.24 in the 200 free.
KU freshman Libby Walker doubled up on day one individual victories with 10:17.95 in the 1000 free (11 seconds ahead of second place) and 2:04.03 in the 200 fly.
Her teammate and fellow freshman Bishop also grabbed a pair of victories, one on day one and the other on day two. She won the 50 free in 23.22 and the 100 fly in 55.62.
