Women's Swimming Fourth After Day One Of The Continental Airlines Classic
Nov. 9, 2001
SEATTLE - Washington freshman swimmer Hannah Jo (Federal Way, Wash.) broke a meet and pool record in the 400 individual medley to lead the Huskies to a fourth place tie (172 pts.) with Missouri Friday at the Continental Airlines Classic in Houston, Texas. The UW trails three ranked opponents, No. 7 California (227 pts.), No. 12 Virginia (195 pts.) and No. 22 Rice (178 pts.), after day one of the meet hosted by Rice University.
Jo set the meet and pool record in the 400 individual medley, coming in with a time of 4:22.76, en route to the UW's only first-place finish of the day. Jo's time was her second NCAA provisional qualifying time in the event this season, beating her previous season-best of 4:24.62, which she posted two weeks ago at the Clan Cup in Canada.
Jo, who also finished third in the 500 free (5:00.38), was helped by teammate, junior Kim Harada (San Lorenzo, Calif.), who came in third in both the 100 (52.03) and 200 (1:51.51) freestyle events. Other top-three finishes went to freshmen Anissa Hilyard (Whittier, Calif.) in the 200 butterfly, and Annette Vayo (Placentia, Calif.) in the 200 backstroke.
The Washington women's team will be back in action again Saturday for day two of the Continental Airline Invitational.
