AUBURN WOMEN'S SWIMMING HAS OUTSTANDING START TO NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS
March 21, 2002

AUSTIN, Texas -- In the first day of preliminary competition at the 2002 Women's Swimming and Diving NCAA Championships, the Auburn Tigers have exceeded all expectations heading into the night's finals.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Becky Short, Maggie Bowen, Cassidy Maxwell and Eileen Coparropa are seeded first heading into the finals earning a school and Texas Aquatics Center record time of 1:29.17.

Individually, sophomores Heather Kemp and Magda Dyszkiewicz made impressive improvements from their Southeastern Conference Championship performances as they both qualified for the championship finals with Dyszkiewicz in the fourth seed (4:45.56) and Kemp in eighth with a career-best time of 4:42.99.

In the 200 individual medley, defending national champion and American Record holder Bowen is seeded second heading into the finals; however, the Jackson, Miss., native is expecting to drop considerable time from her morning swim. Also in the 200 IM, freshman Kirsty Coventry finished ninth (1:59.69) and will be in the consolation finals in the evening.

The Tigers placed three swimmers in the 50 free -- all in career-best times -- with Coparropa taking the top spot for Auburn with a No. 2 seed in 22.20 while Short is seeded fourth (22.42) and Cassidy Maxwell earned the No. 12 seed in a time of 22.93.

Auburn's team of Coventry, Laura Swander, Margaret Hoelzer and Short swam to a sixth place finish in the prelims of the 400 medley relay with a time of 3:38.23, but will swim with three different swimmers in the finals.

Finals are set to begin at 7 p.m. CST in the first day of competition at the NCAA Championships and the meet will continue through Saturday, March 23 here at the University of Texas.
