St. Thomas Women's Swim-Dive started competition Wednesday, the first of six events this week at the four-day NCAA Division III Championships in Greensboro, N.C.

The Tommies' 200 medley relay team of Kirsten Nelson, Ashley Christensen, Anna Astrup and Kate Smarjesse was unable to advance to the top 16 for the evening finals. The quartet clocked 1:46.42 and placed 22nd of 32 teams in the morning prelims.

The same four athletes will compete in four more relays this week, with two of them also in the 100 fly.
