ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - After the first day of competition in which the University of New Mexico swimming and diving team welcomed San Diego State, Colorado State and NMSU, the Lobos lead both the Rams and the Aggies by scores of 89-59 and 84-64, respectively.

Out of the eight events that were held today, New Mexico placed second in five of the events. All of the events that the Lobos placed second in, San Diego State won.

The 200-yard medley relay, the first event of the day, saw New Mexico come in second with a time of 1:35.32, less than a second behind the team from SDSU. Such was the case for most of the evening.

Marissa Campbell was second in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 52.62, which was less than half of a second off the winning time of 52.36 turned in by SDSU's Maddy Dalcamo.

Other events the Lobos performed well in were the 100-yard butterfly, 500-yard freestyle and 400-yard medley relay.

Jorgi Hobson keeps inching closer to once again lowering her school record time of 54.75 in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 56.24, her fastest time of the season thus far. Teammate Heidi Zeiger also turned in her best time in the 500-yard free with a final time of 5:08.24.

In the final event of the day, the 400-yard medley relay, the Lobos placed second with a time of 3:51.82.

Off the boards, the Lobos placed first, second and third off the 3-meter. Aubrey Bush continues to excel after a season of being away from competition, she took the top spot off the 3-meter. Michole Timm was second and Megan Harper took the three spot.

Competition resumes tomorrow at 10 a.m. with the 200-yard medley relay.
