    Swimming & Diving Announces 2014-15 Schedule

    The American All-Academic Team Named


    OAKLAND, Mich. -- For the second day in a row the University of Houston women's swimming & diving team posted some solid times at the National Independent Championships Friday in Oakland, Michigan. The annual NIC meet is for schools that compete as independents in the sport. The Cougars will compete in the first-ever Conference USA swimming & diving championships next year.

    Also for the second-straight day, true freshman Yulia Pakhalina dominated the springboard diving events. After winning the one-meter springboard on Thursday by almost 100 points, Pakhalina registered a score of 705.05 points for a victory on the three-meter. Though the sport is precise enough to score it to two decimal places, her margin of victory was over 230 points Friday. Her performance was as expected as she was a Gold Medal winner in the Sydney Olympics for her native Russia and a former world champion on the three-meter. Platform diving at the NIC meet will be held on Saturday.

    In other events Friday sophomore Falon Hopkins provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 55.97. Junior Stacey Ebeling also posted a second place finish on the day, recording a season-best time of 1:05.64 in the 100-yard breaststroke. Ebeling was one of four Cougars to score in that event. Lucile Turpin, Jelena Matovic and Jessica Blake all reached Friday's championship finals.

    Houston is 42 points out of fourth place. Action in the NIC Championships wraps-up on Saturday.
