Even with some changes to the Owls' more-familiar lineup the Blue & Gray wrapped-up the weekend road swing Sunday with a steady collection of wins. Junior Casey Clark was first in her two individual events, the 200-yard individual medley and 100-backstroke, while Kim Steinhouse and Cora McKenzie posted wins in the 100-freestyle and 200-buterfly, respectively, as well as swimming on winning Rice relays. McKenzie was the anchor of the Owls' 400-medley relay, then swam a 57.75 to lead a 1-2-3-4 Rice finish in the 100-fly. Steinhouse won the 100-freestyle with a 53.76 and was anchor of the 200-free relay that touched first with a 1:39.13.
In Sunday's sprint-relay the Owls went with four different teams grouped by class - seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman. The senior squad of Michelle Gean, Karina Wlostowska, Quincy Christian and Steinhouse finished with the winning time (as well as with some team/class bragging rights). Other individual wins for Rice were Taylor Armstrong in the 500-freestyle, Erin Flanigan in the 200-freestyle and Shelly Patton in the 100-breaststroke.
The Rice swimmers are now 3-3 in six dual meets this season, with each of the team's losses at the hands of former conference rivals who have all been ranked in the national Top 20 at some point this season (Arkansas, Texas A&M and Texas) and all the meets were away from home. The Owls are next back in action on Jan. 31-Feb. 1 competing in the annual Quad Meet vs. LSU, Tulane and the University of Houston. The Cougars will host this year's edition of the two-day, four-team meet, across town at the UH Swim Center.
