AUBURN WOMEN'S SWIMMING SITS IN PRIME POSITION HEADING INTO LAST NIGHT OF FINALS AT NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS -- March 23, 2002

AUSTIN, Texas The Auburn women's swim team entered the preliminary events on the final day of competition here at the NCAA Championships needing to simply have a solid performance to qualify for the evening's finals and attempt to bring home the school's first-ever women's NCAA title to the Plains.

The team's goal was attained as the Tigers qualified six for championship finals and two for the consolation finals for the evening swim in addition to the first place seeding in the 400 free relay.

Starting off the morning were a pair of freshman who haven't performed like it as Margaret Hoelzer earned the No. 2 seed with a school record time of 1:55.07 and Kirsty Coventry swam to a seventh place seed in 1:56.90.

The fast swims kept coming as Becky Short broke teammate Eileen Coparropa's 100 free record in 48.81 while earning a No. 3 seed heading into the finals. Coparropa was close behind Short as she earned a No. 4 seed in a time of 49.03 and Heather Kemp rounded out the seeding for Auburn at No. 12 in a career-best time of 49.42.

Sophomore Laura Swander made the 200 breast consolation finals by .21 and will have a chance to improve her status in the evening swim as she placed 15th in the prelims in a time of 2:14.00.

Auburn again came up with huge swims in the 200 fly placing both swimmers in the championship finals with Hoelzer taking sixth in a school record time of 1:57.30 and Demerae Christianson close behind in seventh with a time of 1:57.68.

Auburn's 400 free relay team of Short, Maggie Bowen, Kemp and Coparropa took the top seed in the 400 free relay with a school record time of 3:16.08 in a close race with Georgia. Final leg, Coparropa, pulled ahead of Georgia for good with just 15 yards to go in the 400-yard race.

The Auburn women have already placed all 11 swimmers as All-Americans with the final night still to come. The Tigers' point total of 337 from the first two days is the highest point total any Auburn women's team has accumulated in the NCAA Championships in all three days.

The finals of the last day of competition will begin tonight at 7 p.m .CST. If Auburn can hold on to its lead, the Tigers will be the first women's team in AU history to win an NCAA title.
