ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. – After almost a month since their last meet, the Salisbury University men's and women's swimming teams dove back into the pool for the first day of competition at St. Mary's (Md.)

Cunningham set a new Salisbury school record with his preliminary run of the 200-yard IM with a time of 1:55.09, crushing the 2008 record of 2:00.98.

During the prelim round sophomore James Gough put up a time in the 500-yard freestyle allowing him to compete in the championship heat where he took eighth place in 5:02.83. After placing sixth in the preliminary round sophomore Chris Franklin (21.99) finished fourth in the championship heat of the 50-yard freestyle.

The women's side entered the finals of day one with five student-athletes who had placed in the top 16 of the preliminary events. All five swimmers competed in the consolation heats of their respective events. Junior Sarah Ault, who placed 11th during the preliminary round in the 200-yard IM, improved upon her time by one second placing third in the consolation heat in 2:19.36, while classmate Sydney Eliff (5:34.46) finished eighth in her consolation heat in the 500-yard freestyle.
