Beavers Drop Two Duals To Start Season

Oct. 19, 2001

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Oregon State was beaten by sixth-ranked UCLA 167-93 in a Pacific-10 dual meet and was edged by California-Santa Barbara 136-124 in a non-league dual as the women's swimming season began Friday afternoon. OSU (0-2 overall, 0-1 Pac-10) will swim its home-opener against Utah next Friday at 5 p.m. at Stevens Natatorium. At UCSB, the Beavers' meet with the host Gauchos came down to the final event, the 400-yard freestyle relay. OSU led most of the way but was outtouched at the finish. 'It was an awesome relay,' Oregon State head coach Mariusz Podkoscielny said. 'It went okay. We swam well, but we lost both meets ... it was disappointing to lose, especially against UCSB, but we had a lot of great performances and swam against some of the top competition in the nation, so it was a great experience.' Naya Higashijima captured three events against both the Bruins and the Gauchos, swimming the best times she's ever recorded in an 'unrested' meet, that is, one in which the Beavers didn't ease off on their training prior to competing. Higashijima took the 1,000 freestyle in 10 minutes, 18.22 seconds, the 200 butterfly in 2:01.77 and the 500 freestyle in 4:59.01. Returning All-American Birte Steven won the 100 breaststroke and 200 breaststroke in both duals. Steven took the 100 breast in 1:03.89 and the 200 breast in 2:16.79. Kristin Huston highlighted the performance of OSU's strong freshman class, swimming three lifetime bests, that included wins in the 100 freestyle against both UCLA and UCSB in 52.79 and a victory against the Gauchos in the 50 freestyle in 24.35. Suzanne Starkey added the Beavers' other victory on the day, taking the 100 butterfly against UCSB in 58.26.
