Queens University of Charlotte lowered their own meet record in the 200 medley relay at the end of the finals session on Wednesday night in Indianapolis. It was a fitting way to end Day One of the 2019 NCAA Division II Championships which had begun with a record in the 1000 free by West Chester University’s Georgia Wright.

Queens sophomore Rachel Massaro (24.96), senior Shelly Prayson (27.16), junior Georgia DaCruz (24.04), and senior Kyrie Dobson (22.42) combined to swam a 1:38.58 to lower the meet mark by .07 that they had set at the 2018 NCAA Division II Championships. The same quartet took down the NCAA Division II Record at the 2018 Bluegrass Mountain Conference Championships with 1:38.49.
