COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou women's swimming and diving team notched another relay NCAA 'A' cut, four more NCAA `B' cuts and set a new school record during day two action at the 2013 Mizzou Invite on Friday, Nov. 22. With one day remaining, the Tigers sit in second with 504 points, 37 points behind leader Arkansas.
Over preliminaries and finals, Missouri tallied another 'A' time in a relay, notched four new individual `B' times, won two events and saw freshman Katharine Ross set a new school mark. Ross became the first female Tiger to break one minute in the 100 breast with a swim of 59.95 Friday evening.
The finals session started with the 200 medley, where the Tigers' A team of Junior Emily Doucette, Ross, junior Danielle Barbiea and sophomore Anna Patterson claimed first with a 1:37.42. The time was good enough for an NCAA `A' cut and was the second-fastest time in school history.
Ross made history later in the evening with her swim in the 100 breast. The freshman took second in the event with a time of 59.95, a new school record. She now stands as Mizzou's only female swimmer to break one minute in the event. Sophomore Lauren Stoeckle was fifth with a 1:01.25, just off her `B' qualifying morning time of 1:01.22.
In the 400 IM championship final, a pair of Tigers finished second and third with NCAA `B' times. Freshman Ellie Suek lowered her prelims swim of 4:17.90 to post a 4:16.02, which ranks third all-time at Mizzou. Junior Danielle Spradlin took third with a 4:17.66, almost two seconds faster than her prelims time of 4:19.25.
Patterson placed second in the 200 free championship final as she posted a finals swim of 1:47.49. In the morning session, Patterson clocked a `B' cut time of 1:46.56.
In the final event of the night, the Tigers took fourth in the 800 free relay in a time of 7:21.36.
The Mizzou Invite concludes on Saturday, Nov. 23 with preliminaries at 10 a.m. and finals at 6 p.m.
