ATLANTA (AP) Louisville's Kelsi Worrell and Indiana's Lilly King each set national records and Georgia stayed atop the team standings at the NCAA swimming and diving championships on Friday night.

With one day left in the event, the Bulldogs have 285 points. California is second with 267.5 points, Stanford third with 265, Texas A&M fourth with 201.5 and Virginia fifth with 196.

Worrell swam the 100-yard butterfly in 49.43 seconds, beating her own American and NCAA records by 0.38 of a second. Eyeing the U.S. Olympic trials this summer, Worrell finished over a full second better than runner-up Sarah Gibson of Texas A&M.

King, a freshman, broke the American and NCAA records in the 100 breaststroke twice in the same day, swimming the preliminaries in 57.15 and the final in 56.85.
