Boston, Mass. - The Stony Brook swimming and diving teams competed on day two of the 2012 America East Championship on Friday, and after 14 events, the men's team stands in fourth, while the women are in fifth.

Senior Darcy Heuser (Centerville, Ohio) opened the day with a strong performance in the 500 freestyle, touching seventh in 4:56.48. Heuser then helped the 200 freestyle relay team place second in 1:35.20, less than a second off the pace set by UMBC.

In the 50 free, sophomore Allison Zelnick (Troy, Ohio) placed fourth (23.85) in a tightly-contested event that saw the top five swimmers place within four-tenths of a second. Stony Brook also recorded a top-10 finisher in the men's 50 free as senior Sean Conway (Oakdale, N.Y.) touched eighth in 21.46.

Junior Molly Swartz (Grass Valley, Calif.) performed well on the three-meter diving board in her first America East championship meet, registering a score of 235.10 to finish fourth overall.

Action resumes on Saturday at the Boston University Aquatic Center beginning at 10 a.m.
