HOUSTON - Rachel Moody provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championships with the fastest time by an Owl in 12 years to win the 200-yard breaststroke on the first day of action at the annual Quad Meet Friday night across town at the University of Houston. Rice head coach Seth Huston provides a video recap (above).
Moody blazed to a career-best 2:15.27 to win the event over a field of 15 competitors from four schools. The junior from Houston (Memorial High School) was less than one half-second from Lauren Hill's school record set in 2002.
The scoring format is that each of four teams in the meet competes in three dual meets simultaneously over a full two days of events. After Friday's halfway point Rice leads crosstown rival Houston by a score of 132 to 51, and Conference USA foe Tulane 133-47. The Owls trail nationally-ranked LSU 130-53.
Sophomore Erin Flanigan posted a new season-best time of 10:02.51 to lead a 1-2 Owl finish with Quincy Christian in the 1,000-yard freestyle. Junior Marissa Konicke was particularly sharp in posting a career-best and NCAA provisional qualifying 54.37 to take second among a field of 21 entries in the 100-butterfly. True freshman Marita Sailor was second in the 200-individual medley with a season-best 2:04.86.
The sophomore tandem of Shelly Patton and Cora McKenzie were third in the 100-backstroke (56.83) and 50-freestyle (23.79), respectively. The Rice foursome of Casey Clark, Chelsea Fong, McKenzie and Karina Wlostowska were second in the 400-freestyle relay (3:26.69).
The meet concludes Saturday at the UH Rec Center Natatorium. Start time is slated for 11 am.
