Putting a period on prelims

The 1-meter diving competition has concluded, which officially wraps up today's prelims session.

The Badgers did not advance a diver to either the consolation final (which begins in 15 minutes) or tonight's championship final.

Freshman Roxanne Fitter posted a score of 247.80 to finish 18th, and Ciara Rinaudo was 25th with a score of 237.60. Emily Cheffins was 31st (213.95) and Leslie Cannon was 33rd (204.40).

Heading into tonight's finals in the pool, Beckie Thompson's conference-best time of 22.24 in the 50-yard freestyle stands as the No. 2 mark in the country this year. Michele King of Tennessee clocked a 22.22 in the prelims of the SEC championships this morning that stands as the NCAA's fastest time so far.
