BOWEN STRIKES GOLD AGAIN IN DAY TWO OF NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS; JUST MISSES TRIFECTA -- March 22, 2002

AUSTIN, Texas -- The No. 2-ranked Auburn Tigers had another outstanding session Friday night in the day two finals of the 2002 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships as the team maintained its first place standing heading into the final day of competition with a score of 337.

Auburn leads second place Georgia (270) by 67 points and the Bulldogs are followed by Stanford with 215, Arizona with 207 and Texas with 202.5.

Maggie Bowen, who claimed the 200 individual medley Thursday night, struck gold again in the 400 IM Friday night as the junior dropped nearly six seconds off her prelim time to earn a school record 4:04.69, which is the third fastest time ever in that event. Bowen's closest competitor in the 400 IM was Alenka Kejzar of SMU, who swam to a 4:06.70.

''We came in with a focus and we just stayed on track,'' associate head women's coach Kim Brackin said. ''There was no faltering. The meet became so much more of a team event instead of individual. Maggie's double was huge for us and her split of 1:44.36 in the 800 free really is a statement of her leadership and her talent, but mostly her leadership.''

Starting off the night; however, was the Auburn 200-yard medley relay team of Jenni Anderson, Laura Swander, Demerae Christianson and Eileen Coparropa, who swam to a school record time of 1:37.94 and a third place finish in a very close race. The Stanford Cardinal won the race in a new American Record time of 1:37.79 while Cal came in second at 1:37.88.

The old school record time in the 200 medley relay of 1:38.56 was the American Record when it was set in 1998 by Auburn.

In the 100 fly, freshman Margaret Hoelzer and Christianson switched spots from the prelims as Hoelzer finished in fourth with a time of 52.76 while Christianson took fifth for the Tigers in a time of 53.06. In that race, Cal sophomore Natalie Coughlin took first in an American, US Open and NCAA Record time of 50.01, which broke her former record from the prelim swim by over a half second.

Auburn's freestyle duo of Heather Kemp and Magda Dyszkiewicz each had impressive swims for the Tigers as Kemp swam to a fourth place finish in the finals with a time of 1:46.54 and Dyszkiewicz took 13th in a time of 1:47.58. Kemp, who finished fourth at the SEC Championships earlier this year, broke the school record in the prelims with a time of 1:46.18.

Bowen almost swept her three events as she captured second in the 100 breast with a school record time of 59.94. Bowen finished second to Tara Kirk of Stanford, who swam to a 59.03, but Bowen upped her position from sixth in the preliminaries to second in the finals to help out the Auburn cause and drop close to a second off her morning swim. Bowen's 59.94 makes her just the sixth person in history to break one minute in the 100 breast.

Coventry broke her own school record in the 100 back finishing fourth in the finals with a time of 53.67 while Anderson took eighth in the event with a time of 54.82 for the Tigers. Coughlin of Cal again took first in an American, US Open and NCAA Record time of 49.97.

In the 800 free relay Kemp's second leg of the race propelled the Tigers into contention with a split of 1:46.35 and Bowen took over the final leg to pull ahead of Georgia and Florida to earn a second place finish in a school-record time of 7:06.70.

''I am extremely proud of these girls,'' said associate head women's coach Kim Brackin. ''They are representing Auburn like it deserves to be. They are truly living the words of the Auburn Creed and they believe in them.''

The Tigers will wrap up competition in the 2002 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday, March 23 as Auburn competes in the preliminary action Saturday morning and finals set to begin at 7 p.m. CST Saturday night.

If Auburn were to win the meet, it would be the school's first-ever women's NCAA title and Auburn swimming and diving's third title as the men have claimed two (1997, 1999).

  • In day two, the Tigers had another record-setting day with sophomore Demerae Christianson breaking her own school record in the 100 fly at 52.96 in the prelims. The previous record was set at the 2001 SEC Championships by Christianson with a time of 53.20.
  • Also in prelims, freshman Jenni Anderson had the swim of the day as she shocked the field earning a No. 5 seed in the 100 backstroke in a time of 54.39. Kirsty Coventry also had a big swim for the Tigers in prelims finishing fourth in a time of 54.51.
  • The AU 200 medley relay team of Anderson, Laura Swander, Christianson and Eileen Coparropa just missed the school record in the prelims with a time of 1:38.71 while the record-holding time is 1:38.56, which was the American Record when broken in 1998.
  • Maggie Bowen again struck gold at the 2002 NCAA Championships as she won the 400 IM in a school record time of 4:04.69, which dropped nearly four seconds off her prelim time and over two seconds off her career-best time.
  • Bowen just missed sweeping her three individual events as she finished second in the 100 breast with a school record time of 59.94. Bowen dropped nearly one second off her prelim time and two seconds off her previous best time. Her time of 59.94 makes her just the sixth person ever to break one minute in the 100 breast.
  • After two days of competition, the Tigers (337) hold a 67 point lead over No. 2 Georgia (270). Last season, Auburn led by just two points over the second place team and ended up finishing fourth overall -- their best-ever team finish.
