The University of Kentucky women's swimming and diving team finished fifth among 69 college and club teams at the Phillips 66 National Championships in San Antonio, Texas, this week.
The fifth-place finish was the highest ever for UK, which set 10 long-course school records during the meet.
The event serves as the USA National Team selection for several international events, including the 2015 Pan Pacific Championships, 2016 World Championships and the 2016 World University Games.
"Overall it was a very good week for us," UK head coach Lars Jorgensen said. "This has served as great preparation for next year's Olympic Trials, as well as our school season which is around the corner. The better that we can compete in the summer, I think that gives us a lot of confidence heading into the school year because I believe that success in the summer is important for success during the school year."
