BUFFALO, NY – For the third time in her career, Brittney Kuras will represent the University at Buffalo at the NCAA National Women's Swimming and Diving Championships in Minneapolis, MN, March 20-22. Kuras has been selected to compete in the 100 freestyle.

She finished 32nd in the event as a sophomore and improved to a 19th place finish last year. 

Kuras is coming off her best ever time in the 100 free as she broke her own school record with a time of 48.50 to be crowned the MAC champion last weekend. 

In addition, Jessica Powers has been selected as an alternate to compete in the 1,650 freestyle. With a time of 16:21.10, the junior broke the school record en route to winning the event at the MAC Championships.
