    Iowa opened the championships behind the quartet of junior Grant Betulius and seniors Andrew Marciniak, Dustin Rhoads, and Gianni Sesto. Swimming the 200-medley relay, the foursome finished sixth in the event, touching out 1:26.33. The time ranks second-best all-time while qualifying for NCAA `B' cut consideration.

    In the only other event of day one, the Hawkeyes swam to a top-10 time in the 800-freestyle relay. Freshman Peter Grumhaus, sophomore David Ernstsson, along with seniors Sesto and Manuel Belzer finished in 6:31.59 to record the 10th-fastest time in program history.
