MINNEAPOLIS – Harvard sophomore Danielle Lee represented Harvard well on day two of the 2014 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships, competing in both the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly.

"Both swims were faster than prelims at the Ivy League Championships," said Stephanie Wriede Morawski, the Costin Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Swimming and Diving. "It was a great first day, and she will build off the experience and be ready for an even faster session tomorrow morning."

In one of her specialties, the 100 back, Lee posted a time of 53.39, her fastest prelim time of the season. The time was good enough for 32nd place in the field of the nation's best swimmers. In the 100 butterfly, Lee clocked in with a time of 54.86, another best time prelim output for the sophomore.

Lee will return between the lanes tomorrow for the 200 backstroke, another one of her strong suits.
