The Iowa women’s swimming team finished 26th out of 51 teams this weekend at the AT&T Short Course National Championships in Federal Way, Wash.

The AquaHawks were represented by six swimmers — senior Christine Kuczek, juniors Katarina Tour and Verity Hicks, sophomores Danielle Carty and Daniela Cubelic, and freshman Sarah Galvin.
Relay events were the AquaHawks’ strength at the meet.

Iowa took sixth in the 4x50 free relay finals, eighth in the 4x100 free relay finals, 13th in both the medley relay events, and 14th in the 4x200 free relay.

Kuczek and Carty had the best individual finishes for the AquaHawks. Kuczek took 20th in the 50 freestyle finals, while Carty had a 20th-place finish in the 100 backstroke finals.

Hicks swam a season-best time in the 500 free finals and Cubelic added a 23rd-place mark in the 100 backstroke finals.

The AquaHawks take to the pool again on Dec. 11 in Ames against Iowa State.
