The Cali, Colombia, native led SMU at Rice on Friday evening with a record-setting performance in the 100-yard backstroke. Arcila finished in a time of 56.41 to break the previous record, which was set by fellow Mustang Therese Svendsen in 2011.
The 2013 edition of the annual SMU Classic meet was an absolute classic, thanks in part to Tanja Kylliainen.
SMU Women are back and ready to compete at the SMU Classic this weekend. Seniors Isabella Arcila and Nina Rangelova (featured image) and juniors Monika Babok and Nathalie Lindborg earned All-America honors for their performances in the 200-yard and 400-yard freestyle events at the 2013 NCAA Championships.
The men’s 50 freestyle final will see five Olympians battle it out for the top spot Anthony Ervin, Cullen Jones, Marcelo Chierighini, Ricky Berens and Tyler…
