    MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.  (March 21, 2014) – Sophomore Joanna Wu (Kent, Wash.) of the Rutgers swimming and diving team made her NCAA Championship debut on Friday, as the second-year Scarlet Knight participated in the 100 backstroke at the Minnesota Aquatic Center.

    Wu posted a time of 52.74 in the prelims of the 100 backstroke event. The time marked a new Rutgers’ school record, breaking Wu’s time of 52.97 that she had previously posted at the American Athletic Conference Championships en route to a gold medal.

    Wu will conclude her first-ever appearance at NCAAs tomorrow with the 200 backstroke. Both the trials and prelims of the 200 back are slated for 11 a.m. CST and 7 p.m. CST, respectively.

    Senior Nicole Scott (Toronto, Canada), who competed in the 1-meter dive yesterday, will wrap up her final season “On the Banks" on Saturday, March 22, with the platform event.
