Boyce Competes In 100 Back, Will Complete NCAA Championships In 100 Free
Junior Lisa Boyce earned another Top-50 finish at the NCAA Championships Friday, and she'll have one more chance to record her first All-America honor Saturday when she competes in the 100 free.
Boyce placed 48th in the 100 back in 54.75, which was off her Ivy League championship time of 52.93, but it did give her a pair of Top 50 finishes in her second straight trip to the NCAA Championships.
On the final day of the NCAA Championships, Boyce will compete in the 100 free. She is currently 20th in the nation in 48.74, and she can grab her third Princeton record by dropping that time by .09 of a second. Boyce is the two-time reigning Ivy League champion in the event.
Boyce was among the select few swimmers nationally who was invited in all three of her events. Boyce qualified in all three at the 2012 NCAA Championships as well, and she placed in the Top 50 in each, including 31st in the 100 free.
"We are excited to be here in Indianapolis with Lisa representing Princeton," said head coach Susan Teeter, who has led Princeton to 11 Ivy League titles in the last 14 years. "She is excited to race and [assistant coach] Suzanne Yee has done a great job preparing her to swim fast. Both of us are very proud of her."
