MINNEAPOLIS -- After the second day of competition at the 2007 NCAA Championships Angela Goodson set a BYU and Mountain West Conference record in the 100 fly and freshman diver Tawni Jones wrapped up a remarkable season competing in the 3-meter dive.

"Angela had great swims today and was able to set a record," said BYU women's head swim coach Stan Crump, the 2006-07 MWC Women's Coach of the Year. "She (Goodson) swam great today and I was really proud of her."

In the prelims Goodson broke the BYU and MWC record in the 100 fly (53.26) and qualified to swim in the consolation heat. In the consolation heat she swam a 54.24 finishing 15th overall.

Jones represented the Cougars well taking 27th overall in the 3-meter dive with a score of 292.90. Her competition at the NCAA Championships finished Friday after competing in both the 1- and 3-meter events.

Goodson will swim in the 200 fly Saturday hoping to set more records and help BYU place in the overall standings.
