OXFORD, Ohio -- Denison women's swimming and diving currently sit in third place after the first day of action at the 2017 Miami Invitational. The host school, Miami University, leads the standings after day one with 478 team points and Emory University follows in second with 246.

Denison's 196 points put them right above the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who is fourth with 185 points. Washington University-St. Louis (120 points) and Ball State University (98 points) round out the top six.

The Big Red totaled six NCAA 'B' cut times on the first day, including four top-five finishes and a pair of victories. The finals opened with a second place finish for DU in the 200 freestyle relay when Gabriella Nutter, Casey Kirby, Angela Le and KT Kustritz touched the wall in 1:33.08.

Kustritz continued her success in the 200 IM when her 'B' cut time of 2:01.98 from the prelims was bested in the finals for a personal-record of 2:01.66 and a first-place finish. Natalie Zaravella logged her own personal-best and 'B' cut time of 2:05.15 as she placed 13th, and Halli Garza clocked in just .02 seconds later for a 14th place finish and a provisional qualifying time of 2:05.17. Erica Hsu clocked in with a 'B' cut time and personal-best of 2:06.25 in the prelims before she logged a 16th place finish in the finals.

In the 500 freestyle, Hannah Rusinko led Denison in the B-Final with a 5:02.99 in 11th place and Caroline Colville followed in 13th with a 5:05.54. Logan Wickman posted a personal-best in the B-Final, logging a 5:01.85, good enough for 19th place.  

Two of the top five in the 50 freestyle belonged to the Big Red as Nutter posted personal-best 'B' cut time of 23.57 to finish in fourth place, while Kirby landed in fifth with a 'B' cut time of 23.60. Maddie Hopkins recorded her career-best with a 24.13 in 15th place.

DU ended their day with a win in the 400 medley relay as Kirby, Kustritz, Hopkins, and Nutter touched the wall in 3:43.77 to stay within striking distance of the lead after day one.

Denison will return to Oxford on Friday, Dec. 1 for day two of the Miami Invitational at 10:30 a.m.
