COLLEGE STATION, Texas, March 19. ARIZONA's foursome of Ana Agy (51.13), Annie Chandler (57.95), Lara Jackson (51.80) and Justine Schluntz (47.43) completed a bounce-back evening for the Wildcats with an American, U.S. Open and NCAA record in the women's 400-yard medley relay of 3:28.31.

Heading into finals, some members of the Arizona team seemed a bit disappointed in the morning performance. The defending national champions, however, maximized their final opportunities, including the relay record that beat Arizona's 3:29.06 set at last year's championship.

California's Lauren Rogers, Alexandra Ellis, Hannah Wilson and Dana Vollmer placed second in the event with a 3:30.27, while USC's Kristen Lahey, Rebecca Soni, Katinka Hosszu and Rachael Waller completed a third-place effort with a 3:30.67.

The triumph gave the Wildcats their third win in the event in four years, and moved them into a tie with Georgia and Texas for the third-most wins in NCAA history. Stanford (9) and Florida (5) own the top two spots.

Arizona finished the day with a top team tally of 141.5 points, while Georgia held second with 133 points. California (126), Stanford (105) and Auburn (91.5) were the rest of the top five.
