HOUSTON, Texas -- UC Davis Solie Laughlin set four NCAA "B" marks and set a school record in winning both the 400 IM and 100 back, while sophomore Kristin Schumann set another NCAA "B" cut in the 100 breast to lead a group of five swimmers who set top-10 times in the record book on Saturday night, highlighting the Aggies' second day of competition at the 2016 Phill Hansel Invitational at the Campus Recration and Wellness Center Natatorium on the campus of the University of Houston.

Buoyed by those performances, UC Davis ended day two in third place overall with 554 points, trailing host Houston (917.5) and Rice (827), which maintained their hold on the top two spots. Overall, the Aggies sent a total of 15 student-athletes into the finals on Saturday night.

Laughin, who contributed 64 individual points while also swimming the leadoff leg of the Aggies' 200 medley relay squad that finished fifth, shattered Heidi Kucera's school mark in the 400 IM with an NCAA "B" time of 4:11.91, shaving six seconds off her "B" cut prelim time to win the event. Kucera had held the record since 2011 with a time of 4:14.70.

The sophomore from Ventura, Calif., then took home individual honors in the 100 back later in the day, finishing with a time of 54.41 in the finals for another NCAA "B" cut after finishing first in the preliminary round with a time of 54.34.

Schumann also posted an NCAA "B" cut time of 1:02.48 in the finales of the 100 breast, lowering her season best time after swimming a 1:02.71 in the prelims and posting the fifth-best time in the event in school history. Roberts joined her in the record books, as her time of 1:02.56 in the finals of the 100 breast is just behind her teammate in sixth on the school's all-time list.

Freshman Cora McClelland posted the second-fastest time by an Aggie in the 100 fly this season during the prelims, touching in a time of 55.71, which ranks as the 10th fastest in school history. Junior Courtney Schultz finished with a season-best time of 1:50.51 in the prelims of the 200 free -- also the 10th fastest in school history -- while freshman Mia Cunnan touched in a time of 57.11, which ranks 10th on the school's all-time list.

Shaifali Goyal won the "B" final on the 3-meter board, scoring 242.25 -- the second highest score by an Aggie diver in the event this season -- while Angelina Proshak finished 19th with a prelim score of 183.10, before the Aggies wrapped up the night with a 10th place finish in the 800 free relay.

Competition concludes on Sunday (Nov. 20) at 10 a.m. CT with prelims in the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, 1650 free, and platform diving, with finals in those events, plus the 400 free relay, to follow at 6 p.m. CT.
