Jan. 26, 2002

BERKELEY, CA - The No. 6 ranked California women's swim team (5-1) defeated No. 3 Arizona, 135-108, Saturday afternoon at Spieker Aquatics Complex. The Bears won seven of the meet's 13 events and were led by sophomores Natalie Coughlin and Danielle Becks, who won two individual events apiece. Coughlin and Becks had won three individual races Friday against Arizona State.

Coughlin, the 2001 NCAA Swimmer of the Year, placed first in the 200 free (1:48.96) and 500 free (4:44.61). Her time in the 500 free was a new Spieker Aquatics Complex record, topping the time of 4:44.91 set by Stanford's Janet Evans on Feb. 16, 1991. Coughlin is now 20-0 in Pac-10 dual meet races.

Becks won the 50 (23.48) and 100 free (50.66). Other winners for Cal included senior Alice Henriques in the 200 back (1:58.70) and junior Staciana Stitts in the 200 breast (2:13.66). Cal also captured the 400 medley relay (3:43.72, Henriques, Stitts, sophomore Natalie Griffith, Becks).

Arizona was led by Artemis Daphnis, winner of the 1000 free (9:57.58) and the 400 IM (4:17.57). Wildcat diver, Claire Febvay, also won both the one-meter (271.88) and three-meter diving competition (264.53).

The Bears will travel to Los Angeles to face USC on Friday, Feb. 1 at 1 p.m., and UCLA on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 1 p.m.
