Later, after taking the win along with the team in the 200 yard-medley relay, Caughron came out on top with a win in the women’s 100-yard freestyle with a time of 51.86 and also won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 23.78.

Iowa State then finished the day with a win in the women’s 400-yard freestyle relay with Caughron, Maddie Ziegert, Andie Quirke and Brinley Horras with a final time of 3:30.55.

Starting out the day on the diving side, sophomore Lauren Kimball finished third with a score of 276.45 in the women’s three-meter dive, while sophomore Kate Mitchell finished fourth with a score of 255.25.
