Gophers senior Danielle Nack accomplished two personal bests at the USA Swimming’s World Championships trials on Tuesday and Thursday.

Nack broke two of her own long-course program records with the 200-meter and 100-meter butterfly, and three other Minnesota records were beaten during the five-day event in Indianapolis.

“Personally, I think I did pretty well, I finally got a best time in one of my events,” Nack said. “I’m super excited about [the time].”

Nack clocked in at 2:13.10 seconds in the 200 meter fly prelims on Tuesday, and she placed seventh in the 100 meter with a time of 58.98 seconds.

Sophomore Tevyn Waddell broke the women’s long course 200-meter backstroke record in the prelims, and broke that same record in the finals with a time of 2:10.86, giving her a third place finish in the B finals. She also got 14th place in the 50-meter backstroke final.

Brooke Zeiger placed sixth in the A final for the women’s 400-meter individual medley with a 4:44.57 time. It was the highest finish by a Minnesota swimmer at the event.

Lindsey Horejsi also placed in the finals, with a 15th place swim in the 50 meter breaststroke and a time of 32.02.
