Rice sophomore Casey Clark closed out her first day of competition at the NCAA Swimming Championships with solid showings in two events Friday afternoon in Indianapolis.
Clark swam a 53.38 in the prelims of the 100-yard butterfly to finish 29th among a field of 56 competitors. She did not qualify for the event finals to be held later this evening. Earlier this season the Owl standout from Spring, Tex., set a new Rice record in the event with a time of 53.01.
Soon after the conclusion of the 100-butterfly, Clark turned right around and competed in the 200-freestyle. She posted a prelim time of 1:46.87 to finish 31st among more than 50 entries. Her season-best in the 200-free is the school record 1:45.78 that she registered while swimming the lead leg on the Owls' 800-free relay at last month's C-USA Championships.
"I was pretty happy with both of my swims today considering I didn't get much time between race'," Clark said. "It;s definitely one of the most exciting meets I've ever been to. Finals are crazy with excitement and cheering."
Clark has one more race to swim at the NCAA Championships. She competes in the prelims of the 200-butterfly on Saturday.
"I am hoping tomorrow I can go at my seed time in the 200 fly or faster, because that will have a good chance of making it back to finals. I could score some points!"
