Swimming: Wisconsin in 12th after second day

The Wisconsin women's swimming and diving team is in 12th after the second day of NCAA competition Friday in West Lafayette, Ind. The Badgers have 68 team points while Georgia leads the pack with 422.5 points

The 800-yard freestyle relay team of junior Anna Trinidad, sophomore Liz Klanderman, sophomore Susan Johnson and senior Carly Piper took seventh in 7 minutes, 12.70 seconds, good for All-America status.

"What a great way to end the night—that relay team moved us from 16th place to 12th," head coach Eric Hansen said. "I'm happy they got All-America, especially Liz. That event has always been special for us."

Piper also took sixth in the consolation finals of the 200-yard freestyle in 1:46.91, while junior Amalia Sarnecki finished the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:01.67, taking fifth in the consolation finals.

Wrestling: Badgers fall to 15th

The Wisconsin wrestling team fell from 13th place to 15th place on the second day of competition at the NCAA Championships in St. Louis. The Badgers have 37.5 points, far behind Oklahoma State, which leads with 127.5 points.

At 133 pounds, junior Tom Clum defeated Drew Headlee of Pittsburgh 6-3 in the quarterfinals but was defeated by Cornell's Travis Lee in the semifinals. Clum will face North Carolina's Evan Sola in the consolation bracket Saturday. He can still finish as high as third place in the tournament.

Junior Ryan Flaherty pinned Lock Haven's Morgan Horner and defeated Oklahoma's Joel Flaggert 13-8 in the consolation bracket at 197 pounds. Like Clum, Flaherty is two wins from a third-place finish.

Freshman Craig Henning (149), redshirt freshman Jake Donar (165). sophomore Tyler Turner (157) and senior Brady Reinke (184) all lost consolation matches and are out of the tournament.
