Feb. 1, 2008
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -Freshman diver Courtney Forcucci helped lead the University of Houston to a sweep of the Top Three place in two events Friday evening during a 145-96 loss at No. 6 Texas A&M at the Student Rec Center Natatorium.
Forcucci, who was honored Tuesday, as the Conference USA Diver of the Week, appeared well on her way to winning her second straight weekly honor by capturing top honors on the 1- and 3-meter springboard.
The Fort Mill, S.C., native scored 312.83 points on the 3-meter board and wrapped up her day with 284.62 points in the 1-meter event.
On the swimming side, junior Andrea Pa'lmai led the Cougars with a second-place showing in the 400-yard clocking after posting a time of 4:24.14, the fourth-fastest time in school history. The Budapest, Hungary, native now owns seven of the Cougars' Top 10 fastest times in that event.
The Cougars wrap up the regular season when it plays host to New Orleans at 11:30 a.m., Saturday at the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center Natatorium. Fans should note that Saturday's starting time was recently changed from earlier published schedules.
