    HOUSTON (Nov. 19) -- The University of Houston swimming and diving team won 12 of 16 events to defeat the University of North Texas by a score of 167-107 Friday night in the UH Natatorium.

    Led by the swimming tandem of senior Jelena Matovic and true freshman Jessica Blake, who both won a pair of events on the night, the Cougars were able to build a big-enough lead so that the team competed as exhibitions in the final four events. Blake, a native of Ontario, Canada, won both the 100-yard breaststroke and 50-yard freestyle. Matovic, also an international-caliber athlete from Serbia, won the 1,000-yard freestyle and 200-yard backstroke. The pair also teamed on the first and last leg of UH's winning 200-medley relay for a total of 12 event wins in all. Blake's exhibition time in the 200-IM (2:12.52) was also good enough for a non-scoring win. In springboard diving UH international star Yolanda Hernandez-Casas, a senior from Mexico City, scored an eye-opening 301.80 to win the one-meter event.

    With the win the Cougars climbed above .500 in dual meets this season, improving to 5-4 overall. The UH swimming and diving team will next be in action at the Texas Invitational in Austin on December 3-5.
