FAIRFAX, Virginia - UNCW jumped to an early lead on the men's side behind its record-setting 200 Freestyle Relay and the women are third with Carly Tanner winning the 50 Freestyle after the second day of the Colonial Athletic Association Swimming & Diving Championships at the McKay Natatorium on Thursday.

The Seahawks lead host George Mason for the men's lead by 21 points while James Madison paces the women's meet. Defending champion Towson is second in the women's championship.

UNCW's 200 Free Relay of C.J. Fiala, Nick Lowe, Stephen Conrad and Joe Gallene set CAA Championship and school records with a winning time of 1:19.80. The UNCW women's team placed second.

Tanner topped the field in the 50 Free with a time of 22.78, narrowly missing the school record of 22.67 set in 2010 by former standout Caitlyn Kirsteier. In the men's 50 Free, UNCW dominated the finals, placing five in the top eight, including Gallene, who finished second.

Also setting a school record was Michael Baric in the 200 IM. Baric broke the mark on two occassions on Thursday, including a third-place time of 1:48.90 in the finals.

Libby Mayock gave the women valuable points with a second-place finish in the 500 Free.

In Diving, JT Perryman earned All-CAA honors with a third-place finish in the 1-meter dive.
