Feb. 22, 2013

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS - The third day of Mountain West competition saw the Lobos stay in sixth place adding 52 points to their column to bring their point total to 209. San Diego State extended their lead on the field and now stands at 516.5. Boise State jumped up three spots and moved into second place with 360.5 points and Wyoming rounds out the top three with 320 points.

Day three of action saw Jorgi Hobson, Marissa Campbell and Stelicia Flores all make finals in the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard backstroke, respectively.

Jorgi Hobson came in third in the 100-yard fly touching the wall in 53.82- a new school record. It is the first time since 2009 that a Lobo medaled in a swimming event. Campbell accomplished the feat at the 2009 MW Championships in the 100-yard back.

Campbell and Flores both finished top eight in the aforementioned 100-yard back after they clocked times of 53.83- another new school record for Campbell- and 54.48 to place fourth and eighth.

In the 200-yard free, Heidi Zeiger was the highest finisher for UNM. The junior came in 17th place as she clocked a time of 1:50.57 just .05 seconds off of the school record mark of 1:50.52 set by Robyn Miller in 2005. Caitlin Gardiner and Anna Lilliestrom also swam in C-finals where they finished 19th and 24th.

The 200-yard free relay team of Hobson, Campbell, Shayla King and April Chee suffered another unfortunate break as they were disqualified and didn't finish the race.

The third and final day of competition commences tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. with the 200-yard back prelims.
