Beavers Win Big In Reno

Nov. 7, 2003

RENO, Nev. - Oregon State ended Nevada's 14-dual meet win streak with a 167-127 non-league victory Friday afternoon at the Wolfpack's Lombardi Pool. Senior All-American Birte Steven and sophomore Ausra Pacebutaite both won multiple events for the Beavers (2-2 overall, 0-1 Pacific-10), whose win early last season in Corvallis had been the last loss for Nevada (7-1, 2-0 Western Athletic).

Steven won the 100- and 200-yard breaststrokes adn 200 individual medley while Pacebutaite took the 100 and 200 backstrokes for OSU, which won despite starting the meet with a 32-point deficit. The Wolfpack picked up those points in the two diving events; the Beavers do not field a diving squad.

Also winning events for OSU were junior Kristin Huston in the 50 freestyle; sophomores Kristi Kuhlmey in the 1,000 freestyle, Monika Miroslaw in the 200 butterfly, and Christina Kinney in the 100 butterfly; and freshman Sandy Hong in the 500 freestyle.

The Beavers also won the 200 medley relay with the team of Pacebutaite, Steven, Christina Kinney and Huston. The Wolfpack was disqualified in the 400 freestyle relay, which gave the OSU team of Sandy Hong, Brie Marhenke, Danielle Kinney and Kuhlmey the victory.

Pacebutaite's two wins give her sole possession of 15th place on OSU's list of Pac-10 era event winners with 14. Steven pushed her career win total to 79; she has seven wins this season.

Up next for the Beavers is the Speedo Cup in Long Beach, Calif. on Nov. 20-22.
