UB’s Burns is competitive in NCAA swimming

University at Buffalo swimmer Megan Burns finished her 2015-16 season in good form on Saturday at the NCAA Championships in Atlanta.

Burns was just off her season best as she finished the 100 freestyle in a time of 48.97 seconds. That was just off her best performance, 28.65, which also was the second-fastest time in school history. Burns finished 29th in the competition, which featured nine preliminary heats. She was less than a second away from qualifying for the finals.

Burns had won every 50 and 100 free event in dual formats this past season, and also won the MAC title in those two events. She is a first team All-MAC swimmer.
