DALLAS (SMU) – Nina Rangelova, who recently capped off a successful career with the SMU women’s swimming and diving program, capped off a successful four days at the Bulgarian National Championships by winning her ninth and 10th gold medals in as many tries.

The weekend ended with wins in the 50-meter freestyle (26.38) and 400-meter mixed relay (4:09.11). Rangelova anchored the relay with a 54.98 split and brought the team back from a five second deficit when she entered the pool.

Isabella Arcila also added another standout performance at Colombian Nationals when she broke the Colombian record in the 50-meter freestyle in 25.66, this coming just two events after she won the 200-meter backstroke. She also finished second in the 100-meter backstroke prelims and took first in the 100-meter freestyle.

During finals, Arcila kept that second-place rank in the 100 back, and also fininished second as part of a 400-meter medley relay team.

Tara-Lynn Nicholas is also back in action on Sunday night after advancing to the semifinals of the 100-meter breaststroke at the Commonwealth Games. The sophomore posted a 1:10.15 in prelims.
