Cal Women's Swimming in Sixth After Day One of NCAAs

March 15, 2001

EAST MEADOW, NY - The No. 10 ranked California women's swim team is in sixth place after the first day of the 2001 NCAA Championship at the Nassau Aquatic Center in East Meadow, NY. The Bears have 85 points after day one and trail only Auburn (121.5), Georgia (112.5), Texas (107.5), Stanford (96.5) and Arizona (87).

Cal placed second nationally in both the 400 medley relay and the 200 free relay, and senior Haley Cope placed second in the 50 free. The Bears 400 medley relay team of Cope, sophomore Staciana Stitts, freshman Natalie Coughlin and freshman Danielle Becks, despite finishing second, still broke the American record and established a new top Cal mark with a time of 3:34.83. The old record was 3:35.37 set by Georgia in 1998 (Stanford won with time of 3:32.43).

In the morning prelims of the 400 medley relay, the Bears freshman standout, Natalie Coughlin, broke the NCAA, U.S. Open and American record in the 100 back with a time of 51.66, breaking the former record of 52.36 set by Cal's Marylyn Chiang in 1999.

The Bears 200 free relay team of sophomore Michelle Harper, Coughlin, junior Adrienne Mattos and Cope broke the Cal school record with a time of 1:30.05 (old mark was 1:30.69 set in 1999).

Cope, the 2000 Pac-10 Swimmer of the Year and the 2001 Pac-10 champion in the 50 and 100 free, placed second in the NCAA's 50 free with a time of 22.34, trailing only Colleen Lanne of Texas (21.99).
