GREENSBORO, N.C. – Three UConn swimmers were in action on day three of the AT&T Winter Nationals on Friday at the Greensboro Aquatic Complex in North Carolina.

Senior Katy Munzenmaier (Lake George, N.Y.) posted an impressive time in the preliminaries of the 200-yard freestyle, finishing 21st in the race with a mark of 1:48.30. That time earned her a spot in the C-Final, which she completed in 1:48.40 to earn a fourth-place finish. On Thursday, Munzenmaier tallied a time of 4:53.67 in the preliminaries of the 500-yard freestyle to rank 51st among the field.

Junior Jeff Magin (Brookfield, Conn.) and senior Lachezar Shumkov (Sofia, Bulgaria) represented the UConn men’s swimming team on Friday, as Magin raced in the 100-yard backstroke while Shumkov competed in the 100-yard breaststroke. Magin notched a 37th-place finish with a time of 49.76, and Shumkov (55.30) posted the 27th-best mark in the breaststroke event.

Magin (200-yard backstroke) and Shumkov (200-yard breaststroke) will both swim in one more race on the final day of the championships on Saturday. Sophomore Tara O’Prey (Ridley Park, Pa.) is the other Husky in action today, as she is set to compete in the 100-yard butterfly.
