COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou women's swimming and diving team finished the three-day Mizzou Invite on Saturday, Nov. 23 and ended up in third-place with 697points. Arkansas won the team title with 809 points, while Utah finishes just ahead of the Tigers with 698.
Over the three days, Missouri notched two NCAA `A' automatic qualifying cuts and 18 `B' times and set or tied three school records.

Additionally, Barbiea and freshman Katharine Ross set new school marks in the 100 fly and 100 breast, respectively, while Missouri tied its 400 medley relay record.
In Saturday action, Barbiea claimed the 100 free title with a swim of 49.01 in the championship final. The time was a tad slower than her prelims swim of 48.80, which earned her a `B' cut and ranked her second all-time at Mizzou. The 100 free crown marked her second individual win of the meet, as she also won the 100 fly on Thursday.
In the 200 breast, freshman Katharine Ross placed third in the championship final with a person best 2:11.44, a time that put her second all-time at Mizzou. Her time also lowered her `B' qualifying time of 2:14.04 from the morning session. Junior Danielle Spradlin won the consolation final with a personal best 2:13.27, which lowered her `B' morning time of 2:14.66. Also clocking an NCAA `B' time was sophomore Lauren Stoeckle, who had a personal best 2:12.15 in prelims.
Sophomore Anna Patterson finished third in the 200 fly with a finals time of 1:58.98. The time was 0.6 seconds off her morning swim of 1:58.33, which gave Patterson an NCAA `B' time in the event. Senior Lexi Spivak won the consolation final with a personal best time of 2:02.51.
Sophomore Madison Bridges placed fourth in the A final of the 200 back with a time of 1:57.56. Earlier in the day, Bridges notched an NCAA `B' time and a new personal best of 1:57.02.
