COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Ally Kleinsorgen, Emma Chard and Abbey Sorensen all recorded top-13 finishes on the second day of the Art Adamson Invitational at College Station, Texas. The trio also tallied B standard times for next spring’s NCAA National Championships.

Kleinsorgen swam in two individual races Friday starting the day with a career-best time of 54.86 in the 100 yard butterfly in the preliminaries Friday morning to place 21st. She did not swim in the C Final for the 100 fly Friday night. Instead, Kleinsorgen focused on the 100 yard backstroke where she swam two B standard times, the first was a 53.24 in the prelims which was good for fifth. The junior then shaved some time off her preliminary time in the championship final Friday night clocking a 53.17 ─ good for fourth place ─ to just miss her personal best time of 53.13. 

Chard finished the day in eighth-place overall in the 200 yard freestyle with a time of 1:48.39. However, the senior swam a B standard time during the prelims in the morning turning in a 1:47.24. 

Abbey Sorensen was the third Bronco to swim a B standard time on the day doing it twice in the 100 yard backstroke. Her best time of 54.09 was a career-best result and came in the preliminary rounds during the morning. She turned in a 54.40 in the B final Friday night to place fifth in the flight and 13th overall. 

Joining Kleinsorgen with career-best times in the 100 yard butterfly Friday were Laura Williams who swam 55.57 (34th) and Mandy Barnes who clocked a 55.73 (38th), both during the prelims.

Mathis set a career best in the 100 breaststroke during the prelims with a 1:04.07. She then beat that mark in the D final Friday night swimming a 1:03.98 to place fifth in her flight and 29th overall.
