Swimming Breaks Four School Records on Day 1 in Dallas
DALLAS — The Miami Hurricanes swimming team opened the SMU Invite in blazing fashion Friday night, breaking four school records in an impressive opening day of competition.
After setting two Brazilian records in the morning’s preliminary round, junior Giulia Carvalho continued her eye-popping start to the year with a program-record time of 51.51 in the 100-yard butterfly.
Carvalho – along with teammates Jane Fitzgerald, Jacey Hinton and Talia Bates – opened the night’s final round with a program-record 1:29.91 finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay.
Miami wasn’t done there.
Newcomer Emma Shuppert led the way with a school record time in the 100-yard backstroke (52.50) to help the 400 medley relay team break the program record in the event with a time of 3:34.81.
Shuppert, who transferred to Miami from Duke, was joined by teammates Emma Sundstrand, who went 1:01.25 in the breaststroke, Carvalho, who went 52.18 in the butterfly, and Bates, who finished 48.88 in the freestyle.
The SMU Invite continues Saturday from Dallas.
