    RECAP: Cougars Win Five Events in Dual Meet Loss to Rice

    PREVIEW: Cougars to Face Rice Owls

    Cougars Fall to Incarnate Word


    Feb. 3, 2009

    IRVING, Texas--University of Houston diver Anastasia Pozdniakova won her 11th-career Conference USA Diver of the Week honor, the fifth-most weekly honors won by an athlete in any C-USA sport and the most for any diver in C-USA history.

    The weekly honor is also Pozdniakova's record-tying seventh this season.

    The junior broke pool records in both the 1-meter and 3-meter events at the LSU Invitational in Baton Rouge, La. She has won both events eight-consecutive times this season.

    The Elektrostal, Russia native was the only diver to exceed 300 points in both events. She posted 364.80 points in the 3-meter and 337.70 points in the 1-meter.

    The Cougars will host the "Sprint for the Cure" meet against Texas at the CRWC Natatorium at 6 p.m. Feb. 11.

    The meet is free, but the team is asking fans to make a donation at the door because 100 percent of the proceeds from the event will be donated to cancer research.
