During the final day of the Georgia Tech Invitational on Sunday, Alabama swimming and diving sophomore Rhyan White broke two school records giving her a total of four over the weekend.

Breaking the school record in the 200 backstroke in Sunday’s prelims with a 1:52.14, White shaved two more seconds off her time during the finals with a 1:50.14. She also shattered another team record, recording a 1:55.78 in the 200 butterfly, passing the previous best set in 2010 by more than a second.

Junior Flora Molnar posted a school record in the prelims of the 100 freestyle with a 48.15. She then became the first woman in Alabama history to finish under 48 seconds, with a 47.98 in the finals.

Freshman diver Tanesha Lucoe secured a win, taking top honors off the platform with 254.70 points.

The Crimson Tide finished the weekend with a school record in the 400 freestyle relay, with sophomores Morgan Scott and Julia Wolf combining with Molnar and senior Allie Surrency to go 3:14.26.

Alabama will next compete with two trips to Auburn, first on Dec. 5, then again on Dec. 17-19 for the Auburn Diving Invite to close out the fall semester.
