MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Olympian Missy Franklin set a record in winning her first NCAA title for California on Friday and Georgia stretched its lead in the team standings on the second day of the NCAA women's swimming and diving championships.

Franklin shattered the 200-yard freestyle mark, finishing in 1 minute, 40.31 seconds to beat Georgia Olympian Shannon Vreeland (1:42.26). Megan Romano of Georgia set the previous mark of 1:41.21 at the 2012 championships.

The Bulldogs had two other swimmers in the final, with Olympian Brittany MacLean placing fourth (1:43.30) and junior Jordan Mattern eighth.

Georgia held a 369-297 lead over Stanford, with California and Texas A&M next.

Bulldogs senior Laura Ryan provided the Bulldogs with their first two NCAA diving titles in program history and 40 points, adding the 3-meter title to the 1-meter crown she won Friday.
