    Houston, TX (Nov. 4) - The University of Houston women's swim team was defeated by Arkansas by a score of 154-77 Nov. 4 at the UH Natatorium. A pair of Cougars, junior Elissa Nelson and sophomore Falon Hopkins, both recorded two wins each but the visiting Lady Razorbacks won nine of the meet's 13 events.

    Hopkins paced the Cougars in the sprints while Nelson swept both distance events. After winning the 1,000-yard freestyle with a career-best time of 10:23.13, Nelson defeated Arkansas Leslie Johns by less-than four-tenths of a second to remain undefeated in the 500-freestyle this season. Hopkins won the 100-yard butterfly (59.10) and was victorious in her first 200-individual medley of the 2000-01 season with a mark of 2:13.12.

    Arkansas' international standout Natalia Kodajova won both the 100-freestyle and 100-breaststroke while Katerina Kordloukova swept both diving events.

    Houston fell to 1-3 overall in dual meet records this season. The Cougars will next be in action in a double-dual meet against BYU and New Mexico in Albuquerque on November 9.
