Aug. 15, 2003
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic - Stanford women's swimmers Kristen Caverly, Laura Davis and Dana Kirk have been competing at the 2003 Pan American Games since August 11. Caverly picked up a sliver medal in the 400 meter individual medley last Monday, recording a time of 4:46.18 in the finals after placing fourth in the qualifying round with a mark of 4:51.69. Kirk took a bronze medal in the 100 meter fly on Thursday, recording a time of 1:00.51 after placing third in the qualifying round with a mark of 1:00.69. Davis was 22nd in the prelims of Thursday's 100 meter fly with a time of 1:02.96.
Caverly also recorded a time of 2:34.98 in the prelims of the 200 meter breast on Tuesday, finishing with the fifth-best time overall. However, Caverly was the third American finisher and did not qualify for the finals sessions due to the rule of the Pan American Games that states that only two swimmers from the same country can qualify for the finals in each event.
