INDIANAPOLIS - Mizzou senior Dominique Bouchard secured her third career All-America first team honors during Day two preliminary action at the 2013 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships Friday morning. Bouchard took eighth in the 100 back prelims to advance to Friday evening's 100 back championship final.
The Tigers also advanced two individual swimmers and one relay to tonight's B final. Senior Cassie Cunningham placed 15th in the 100 back, while sophomore Danielle Barbiea took 16th in the 100 fly. Mizzou's 200 medley relay also finished 13th during preliminary action.
Bouchard made the 100 back championship final for the first time in her career with a morning swim of 52.11. At last year's NCAA Championships, she placed 11th in the event. Bouchard's two other All-America first team honors came in the 200 back.
Now a three-time NCAA qualifier, Cunningham advanced to her first career B final. Her time of 52.79 in the 100 back was good enough for 15th overall in the morning session.
Barbiea also earned the first individual B final berth of her career in the 100 fly. The sophomore took 16th in the prelims with a personal best time of 52.54.
In the 200 medley relay, the Missouri's team of Cunningham, senior Amanda Masters, Barbiea and freshman Anna Patterson posted a time of 1:38.22 to take 13th. The time ranks as the second best in program history.
Barbiea and Patterson also clocked 47th-place finishes during the session. Barbiea swam a 54.56 in the 100 back, while Patterson clocked a 1:48.27 in the 200 free.
Day two finals will begin at 7 p.m. ET on Friday.
