AUSTIN, Texas-University of Minnesota junior Tevyn Waddell failed to make the finals in two individual events at the NCAA Division I swimming and diving championships on Friday, but rebounded to help the Golden Gophers to an 11th-place finish and an honorable mention All-American nod in the 200-yard medley relay.
The Mitchell native swam the butterfly leg of the race in 23.44 seconds, allowing Minnesota to finish with a time of 1:36.65.
Waddell placed 29th in the preliminary heat of the 100 fly with a time of 52.43, while taking 31st in the 100 backstroke with a time of 52.59.
Waddell returns to the pool for the final day of the NCAA championships on Saturday, beginning with the 200 backstroke prelims, an event in which she is seeded 15th. She is also slated to compete as a member of Minnesota's 400 freestyle relay team.
