DAY ONE RESULTS l LIVE RESULTS l LIVE VIDEO l WEEKEND SCHEDULE

It's her final Big Al Open, and senior Lisa Boyce is making sure she makes the most of it. The 2013 All-America performer won the 50 free and led off two winning relays to help the Princeton women's swimming and diving team to a lead over Yale after the first day of the Big Al Open.

Princeton leads the field with 281 points, while Yale stands second with 258 points. Those two look like they will compete for the title, as third-place Dartmouth is well behind with 183 points.

The competition continues Saturday with prelims at 11 am and finals at 6 pm. The full schedule can be seen by clicking on the link above.

Princeton got off to a strong start, winning the 200 free relay in 1:32.24. Boyce led off with a blistering 22.44 split, and the sophomore trio of Elizabeth McDonald, Morgan Karetnick and Nikki Larson took it home for the victory.

An all-underclassman squad, including a freshman trio, added a fourth-place finish in 1:34.94. Sophomore Maylin Meisenheimer joined the trio of Katie Diller, Kathleen Mulligan and Olivia Chan, each of whom impressed in their Big Al debuts.

Yale made its big move in the 500 IM, where sophomore Eva Fabian — arguably the league's top distance swimmer — won in 4:47.86. Princeton's top finisher was senior co-captain Maureen McCotter, who took 10th in 4:56.16.

Princeton countered Yale's move in the 200 IM, where the Tigers put five in the finals and grabbed three of the top four spots. Sophomore Beverly Nguyen took second in 2:01.51 — only .1 of a second off the win — while Chan (2:01.60) and Larson (2:03.04) took third and fourth. Karetnick and sophomore Sada Stewart also placed in the finals.

Boyce gave Princeton its first individual victory, taking the 50 free in 22.33. The two-time defending Ivy League champion in the event, Boyce joined Karetnick (fifth, 23.64) and McDonald (eighth, 23.80) in the finals.

Princeton closed the session with a dominant win in the 400 medley relay, as the team of Boyce, Chan, Karetnick and Larson posted a time of 3:41.91 to top Yale by nearly five full seconds.
