"Today was a struggle for the team," Auburn coach Brett Hawke said. "We had a bad preliminary session and had to do the best we could tonight during the finals. We're hoping to bounce back tomorrow and qualify swimmers in individual events to score more points."
Auburn's best finish on Friday was a 12th place in the 200 medley relay with Melissa Marik, Micah Lawrence, Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace and Hannah Riordan swimming a time of 1:38.99.
The 800 freestyle relay of Ava Ohlgren, Caitlin Geary, Katie Gardocki and Maggie Bird finished 13th with a time of 7:11.48.
