GENEVA, Ohio — Allyson Mitidieri and Christina Janosky both broke IUP school records Friday and earned All-America honors on Day 3 of the NCAA Division II Swimming Championships at the Spire Institute.

Mitidieri earned her third All-America selection of the meet — and eighth of her career — by placing eighth in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:03.26. She broke the school record in the event in the preliminaries Friday with a time of 1:02.90, besting her school-record time of 1:03.09

Janosky took sixth place in the 500 freestyle with a school-record time of 4:57.18 to receive her first All-America honor after breaking the previous school record during the morning session.

Aniella Janosky, meanwhile, picked up her second All-America selection of the week with a fifth-place finish in the 200 butterfly (2:02.55). The top eight finishers in each event earn All-America honors.

All three swimmers were scheduled to return to action today and will team up with Taylor Snyder in the 400 freestyle relay. Mitidieri will compete in the 200 breaststroke, Christina Janosky will swim in the 1,650 freestyle and Snyder will compete in the 100 freestyle.
