BERKELEY, CA - The California women's swim team (1-0), which finished fourth in the nation last season, opened the 2000-01 campaign with a 183-95 dual meet victory over San Jose State (0-1) Sunday afternoon at Spieker Aquatics Complex.

The Bears were led by freshman Natalie Coughlin, who won the 100 back (56.33), 100 free (51.12) and the 200 breast (2:23.34).

The Bears won all 14 of the swimming events and captured the one meter (freshman Danielle Sermer 244.27) and three meter (sophomore Christina Flynn 248.85) diving events.
