No. 2 Ranked Cal Women's Swimmers Perform Well at Continental Airlines Classic

Nov. 10, 2000

HOUSTON, TX - It was an historic night during the Continental Airlines Classic Friday as nine Rice Pool records were broken and the meet was not decided until the final race.

No. 2 ranked California, No. 9 Michigan and No. 22 Penn State were separated by only a few points heading into the last event, the 400-yard freestyle relay. Michigan and Cal were neck-and-neck the entire race until the Wolverines' Olympic gold medalist Samantha Arsenault touched the wall just one one-hundreth of a second ahead of Cal's Haley Cope. Michigan broke the old mark by two seconds with a time of 3:25.64.

Michigan finished the Continental Airlines Classic with 209 points, followed by Penn State with 206 points and Cal with 205 points. Host Rice had 177 points, followed by Illinois at 162 and Missouri with 140 points.

Bear freshman Natalie Coughlin set the pool record in the 200 free, her first of three records on the night, at 1:48.59, followed by Arsenault at 1:50.00 and Armstrong at 1:50.84. All three times eclipsed the old Rice Poolmark. Coughlin also set new marks in the 200 backstroke (1:59.83) and the 100 freestyle (50.66). Teammate Cope, the 2000 Pac-10 Swimmer of the Year, broke the pool mark in the 100 backstroke at 55.71.

In one of the night's closest races Penn State's Corrie Clark edged Cal freshman Kyoko Yokouchi in the 400 individual medley. Both broke the Rice Pool record, Clark in 4:23.15 and Yokouchi in 4:23.36.

The action continues Saturday at 10 a.m. at Rice Pool with the same six teams competing in the Rice Invitational.
