SANTA CLARA, Calif.-- Liz Smith reached the final of two more swims on Saturday, finishing fourth in the 100-meter breaststroke and fifth in the 400 individual medley at the Santa Clara International Invite on Saturday.

Kate Dwelley (200 free) and Betsy Webb (100 back) also reached A Finals, both finishing sixth in their respective events.

Smith, who was third on the 200 breast on Friday, was fourth in the shorter breaststroke a day later with a time of 1:10.75, just missing a medal by 15 hundreths of a second, behind third place finisher Katlin Freeman (1:10.60). Kasey Carlson won the event with the time of 1:09.13. In the 400 IM, Smith finished fifth with a time of 4:45.68, as Cal's Caitlin Leverenz won the event (4:39.12).

Dwelley posted a time of 2:01.83 in the A Final of the 200 free, after Sam Woodward and Andi Murez were sixth and seventh in the B Final of the event. Webb posted a time of 1:03.06, while freshman Natalie Durant was fifth in the C Final.
