St. Mary's junior Kelly Heyde placed 23rd in the 400 individual medley - the highest finish among CAC women's swimmers during the Day 2 morning trials at the 2012 NCAA Swimming Championships.
In her second event of the week, Heyde touched the wall in 4:36.73 to finish 23rd out of 26 competitors in the event. Her NCAA qualifying time was 4:31.79.
Mary Washington's Amber Kerico and Megan DeSmit also participated in Thursday's morning trials, but did not advance to the evening championship races.
Kerico placed 25th out of 41 swimmers in the 100 butterfly in 57.54. Her qualifying time was 57.45, just under one-tenth of a second quicker than her championship time.
DeSmit competed in the 200 freestyle, placing 40th out of 42 swimmers in 1:56.92. That was nearly four seconds better than her NCAA qualifying time of 2:00.56.
