Cougars Find Water Rough At California

Oct. 18, 2003

BERKELEY, Calif. -- The California swimming team won all 14 events on its way to a 170.5-86.5 dual meeting win over Washington State, Saturday.

The Golden Bears posted sweeps of the top three positions in eight of the 14 races. California's Erin Reilly recorded victories in the 800 free, 200 fly and 400 free.

Washington State freshman Monika Povilonyte notched a pair of second place finishes on the heels of her two victories at San Jose State, Friday.

Povilonyte, a native of Klaipeda, Lithuania, swam the 100 breast in 1:13:00 and the 200 breast in 2:35:98.

'We stepped up and raced better than we did Friday and this was a much tougher opponent,' said WSU Head Coach Erica Quam. 'We kept racing all the way through the meet. We made the last relay close and had the lead at the 150 mark.'
