No. 24 Missouri Overrides Nebraska

LINCOLN, Nebraska, January 27. THE Nebraska swimming and diving team came up short on Senior Day as they fell to No. 24 Missouri, 169.5-122.5, Saturday at the Devaney Natatorium.

Bailey's school record mark was a time of 9:51.48 in the 1,000 freestyle, breaking her previous best of 9:51.91 from the 2006 Big 12 Championships. It was also a Devaney Natatorium pool record, marking the second time this season she has reset her own mark. The other came two weeks ago against Kansas in a time of 9:55.10 and her initial pool record came as a freshman against Truman State (9:57.84) on Nov. 13, 2004.

However, Bailey's win in the 1,000 free was Nebraska's only victory through the first five events as the 24th-ranked Tigers built a large lead out of the gate.

Freshman Mariah Hutchinson ran her season-win total to 10 as she continued to impress in the butterfly races, winning the 200 fly in 2:06.11 and the 100 fly in 57.96. Hutchinson's 10 wins are a team-high among Nebraska freshmen. She had two victories in the Huskers' win over Nebraska-Omaha Friday night.

Bailey won Nebraska's fourth event of the day in the 200 IM in 2:07.45 before the 200 freestyle relay team of Hutchinson, junior Adrienne Goodman, senior Emilee Crawford and Bailey took first in 1:40.06 in the last event of the meet.
