Feb. 28, 2004

With 798 points after two days of competition, the women's swim team continues to be in third place at the Ivy League Championships. Yale separated itself further from fourth-place Brown, who has 690.5 points, but is well behind the 885.5 points of second place Harvard.

Teams competed Friday in the 200 medley relay, 1000 free, 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, and 800 free relay. Two Eli competitors won their events on the day, while there were several other strong performances by Yale.

Junior Becca Knicely was the champion in the 100 fly, where her time of 55.28 was a NCAA-B qualifying score. In the 200 freestyle, senior Paige Harazin also swam a NCAA-B time of 1:50.27 and won the event. Harazin was also part of Yale's 800 free relay team that earned a USA Nationals time. The relay squad of Chase Butler, Moira McCloskey, Cristina Hession, and Harazin finished in 7:28.51 and earned second place to Princeton.

Caroline Stephenson finished the 400 IM with a NCAA-B time of 4:23.44, ending up third in the event, while Laura O'Brien finished third in the 1000 yard freestyle with a time of 10:06.43.

The Elis will compete in the Championships' final seven events today.
