  • Results

    BOCA RATON, Fla. (Feb. 27) --- Despite only one first-place finish on the final day, the University of Houston swimming and diving squad held onto its slot, finishing third at the National Independent Collegiate Conference Swimming and Diving Championships. The Cougars finished fourth a year ago.

    Bolstered by the one-two finish of senior divers Yolanda Hernandez and Christi Christensen in the one-meter competition, the Cougars were able to hold off Western Kentucky and host Florida Atlantic. Houston finished with 549 points behind championship winner Cincinnati (726) and Oakland University (608).

    Hernandez made it two-for-two in the diving events, capturing the one-meter championships with a score of 389.75 after winning the three-meter event on Friday. Christensen tallied 347.85.

    Sophomore Christy Milstead clocked a 2:05.81 in the 200-yard butterfly to capture second in the event-the top finish among swimmers on the day. The tandem of freshman Jessica Blake and sophomore Deidra Thomas finished four-five in the 200-yard backstroke, clocking 2:06.63 and 2:07.35, respectively.

    Other top finishers were freshman Falon Hopkins and junior Angela Sanchez. Hopkins finished seventh in the 100-yard freestyle in a time of 52.98, while Sanchez captured eighth in the 1650-yard freestyle with a time of 17:38.45.

    The Cougar 400-yard freestyle squad also grabbed some points on the afternoon. The quartet of sophomore Stacey Ebeling, junior Jelena Matovic, senior Mandy Harms and Hopkins took fifth place in a time of 3:32.09.
