— Joy Bunting placed ninth in the 200-yard individual medley as Kansas University’s swimming and diving team earned 60 points to move within six points of fourth-place Nebraska on Day Two Thursday of the Big 12 Championships.

Bunting’s 2:00.70 matched a season-best and bettered her time at last year’s league meet (2:01.88) by over a second.

Finishing just a few places behind her teammate was sophomore Brooke Brull, 14th in 2:02.58.

KU’s 200-yard freestyle relay team of senior Amanda Maez, junior Abigail Anderson and sophomores Brooke Brull and Monica Johannessen gave the Jayhawks a season-best 1:32.50, good for fourth place.
