COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou women's swimming and diving team claimed the 2012 Mizzou Invite title to cap a memorable three-day meet on Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Mizzou Aquatic Center. Missouri, which posted two NCAA `A' qualifying times on day three, concluded the three-day event with 1,000.5 points to defeat seven other teams. Boise State finished in second with 778 points, followed by UC Davis (575.5), UNLV (543), Florida International (383), Drury (301), SLU (120), Lindenwood (58) and Clemson (23).

In the final event of the Invite, the Mizzou `A' relay team of Cassie Cunningham, Danielle Barbiea, Emily Doucette and Anna Patterson dominated their race and swam an NCAA `A' time of 3:16.85. The time also ranks second in Mizzou history.

Dominique Bouchard posted an NCAA `A' qualifying time of 1:52.15 in prelims to advance as the top seed to the evening's finals. Her time was also a new Mizzou Aquatic Center pool record, one day after she broke her own 100 back school record. In the final, the senior earned top honors with a swim of 1:52.77.

The Tigers also had the top two finishers in the 100 free in the championship final. Emily Doucette took first with a swim of 50.17, while Danielle Barbiea was second in 50.39. Both times were narrowly off their prelim swims.

In the 200 breast, Rachel Ripley took top honors with a 2:12.36, just less than a second faster than her prelims swim of 2:13.36. Danielle Spradlin was third in 2:13.59 and Amanda Masters fifth with a 2:17.08.

Anna Patterson led all Tigers with a second-place showing in the 200 fly in the finals with a 2:00.23. The freshman swam a 1:59.43 in the prelims.

In the diving well, Lauren Callin placed second in the platform with 200.25 points.

The diving squad next competes at the Tennessee Invite on Jan. 5, 2013 in Knoxville, Tenn. The whole team then travels to Alabama for a Southeastern Conference matchup with the Crimson Tide on Saturday, Jan. 13.
