University of Wyoming sophomore swimmer Adam Kalms achieved a school-record time in the 200-yard individual medley on day one of the 2013 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships.

Swimming in the IU Natatorium, Kalms finished his first career race at the championships in second place of his heat finishing 37th overall with a time of 1:45.86. He is the first Cowboy in school history to achieve a sub-1:46.00 in the 200 IM.

"It was good to get Adam's first race out of the way and I am happy that he was able to go faster than he has all season," Wyoming head coach Tom Johnson said. "We are really looking forward to tomorrow for the 200 free. If he can do what he did today and go faster, he has a great opportunity to be swimming in the finals tomorrow night."

Kalms will continue the NCAA Championships on Friday, with his highest ranked event the 200-yard freestyle. He enters the preliminaries with the 13th fastest time in the meet of 1:34.52.
