Women's Swimming Finishes Second at UOP Invitational
Oct. 17, 2009
Corvallis, Ore. - The Oregon State women's swim team finished in second place at the University of the Pacific Invitational in Stockton, Calif. Saturday.
The Beavers finished in second place (911.5) behind BYU who finished with a final score of 1,023.
'It was a good meet for us,' Oregon State head coach Larry Liebowitz said. 'I am very pleased with the results that we had. It was a good way to see where we are at this early in the season.'
One of the key contributors on the day for the Beavers was sophomore Jenni Dole who won the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:06.00 and the 100 backstroke with a time of 56.94. She also finished fourth in the 100 butterfly (57.07).
Senior Lisa Chewning set a career record in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:25.77 which breaks her previous mark by over three seconds.
'We swam really well today but unfortunately BYU had too much depth in the freestyle and we couldn't make up the ground,' Liebowitz said. 'It was a good weekend and we're looking forward to spending next weekend in Las Angeles.'
Oregon State opens up its Pac-10 season in Las Angeles next weekend when it takes on USC Friday Oct. 23 starting at 12 pm and UCLA along with UCSB Saturday Oct. 24.
