COLLEGE STATION, Texas (SMU) - The SMU women's swimming and diving team completed night two of the Art Adamson Invitational at Texas A&M on Friday evening.

In the 100-yard breaststroke, junior Rachel Nicol finished fourth in 1:00.58, the time was just shy of the 1:00.51 she recorded in the preliminaries, which sets a new school record. The previous SMU standard was set by Corrie Clark in 2005.

The Mustangs continue to occupy the fourth spot ahead of TCU and Air Force, while No. 4 Texas A&M has taken the lead over No. 7 Stanford and LSU.

SMU continued a successful run in relay action by starting the evening with a fourth place finish in the 200-medley relay. Nicol, senior Monika Babok and juniors Isabella Arcila and Nathalie Lindborg finished in a time of 1:39.31, which was a season best for any SMU combination.

In the final event of the night, senior Nina Rangelova, Arcila and Lindborg and freshman Ursa Bezan finished fourth in the 800-yard freestyle relay in a time of 7:16.35. The time shattered a season best for any Mustang group, which previously stood at 7:28.78.

Arcila picked up fifth place in the 100-yard backstroke (53.80), while Rangelova placed seventh in the 200-yard freestyle (1:48.41). Lindborg also competed in the 200-free and placed first in the B Final with a season-best 1:47.98 good for a `B' Standard result.

Senior Deanna Matthews turned in a season-best day in the 400-yard individual medley by recording a 4:26.01 in the preliminaries and a 4:27.38 in finals.

The Mustangs conclude action at the Texas A&M Invite on Saturday. Prelims begin at 9:30 a.m. CT, with finals to follow at 4:30 p.m.
