Swimmers Sweep Cougars After 135-68 Victory During Day Two Racing

Jan. 31, 2004

Oregon State, with its win over Pacific-10 rival Washington State Saturday morning, swept the Cougars and notched their second conference win on the season. The Beavers (7-3 overall, 2-1 Pacific-10) won 10 of 11 events over the Cougars (1-8 overall, 0-5 Pacific-10).

There were two multiple event winners on the day. Senior All-American Birte Steven notched two more wins on her belt, bringing her to 97 on her career. She won the 200-yard freestyle and 100 breaststroke events. Junior Kristin Huston, with wins in the 50 and 100 freestyles, brought her career win total to 48.

Junior Mari Embertson touched the wall first in the 400 individual medley. Three sophomores won events for the Beavers - Kristi Kuhlmey in the 1,000 freestyle, Christina Kinney in the 100 butterfly, and Ausra Pacebutaite in the 100 backstroke.

The Beaver relay teams were also victorious in the 400 medley relays, which opened and closed the meet.

Freshman Erin McCleave had the only event win for the Cougars in the 500 freestyle. She was the only Cougar swimmer to win events for WSU on either day.

The Beavers bring their racing home for one last time when they take on Pacific-10 rival and no. 23 Washington Huskies. The meet is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. in Stevens Natatorium.
