Missouri women’s swim and dive finished 13th at the NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships last Saturday in Indianapolis.

The team finished with 135 points. At last year's nationals, the team scored 139 points for a No. 11 finish, the highest in program history.

Over four days of competition March 15-18, Mizzou set eight school records, including the 800 free relay with a time of 7:01.02 from Erin Metzger-Seymour, Sharli Brady, Kira Zubar and Rachel Hayden and the 400 free relay with a time of 3:15.59 from Metzger-Seymour, Haley Hynes, Hannah Stevens and Hayden.

Four Tigers earned individual first team All-America honors, and two more won honors and honorable mentions in multiple relays.

Stanford, a team that features Olympian Katie Ledecky, took first place at the championships.
