GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Records still are falling for Minot senior Dagny Knutson.

Results from the North Dakota state girls swim meet show Knutson set two national records during Friday's preliminaries in Grand Forks.

Knutson swam the 200-yard individual medley in 1 minute, 53.82 seconds. It was 2.63 seconds faster than the mark set by Mary Beck last year and nearly 5 seconds faster than Knutson's own state record in 2007.

She swam the 100 freestyle in 48.15 seconds, topping her own record of 48.33 last year.

Knutson, who was signing autographs at the pool Friday, has trained with gold medalist Michael Phelps. She plans to attend Auburn University next fall, and says her goal is to make the Olympic team in 2012.
