The Broncos’ 200-meter freestyle relay team of Brittany Aoyama, Abbey Sorensen, Katelyn Martin and Ally Kleinsorgen finished 12th in the consolation final at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Thursday to earn All-American honorable mention.
The finish is the highest in program history by a relay.
Earlier in the day, Martin was 19th and Aoyoma 27th in the 50 freestyle, and Emma Chard was 50th in the 500 freestyle.
The Broncos also were entered in the 400 medley relay but scratched the event.
