Nov. 22, 2013Casey Clark broke her own school record in the 100-yard butterfly and Quincy Christian added another impressive win in the 400-individual medley to help lead the Rice swimmers on the second day of competition at the annual U.H. Invitational Friday night across town at the Cougars' Recreation & Wellness Center Natatorium.
The Owls won four of seven events Friday to hold first place in the six-team field with 686 points. Meet host Houston is second with 462.5 points while the University of Idaho is third (454), followed by New Mexico (384), Tulane (360.5) and North Texas (296).
Clark broke the school record she set in the 100-butterfly last season with a new mark of 52.85. The junior from Spring, Tex., led a 1-2-3 Rice finish in the event with Marissa Konicke (54.48) and Chelsea Fong (55.32). Clark also swam on two winning Rice relays that posted season-best times of 1:42.27 in the 200-medley and 7:17.02 in the 800-freestyle.
Already a three-time Conference USA champion in the 400-IM, Christian just missed breaking her own school record in that event with a season-best 4:17.80 that is the fastest mark in the league so far this season. Madison Livingston was third in the race with a 4:24.60.
Sophomore Taylor Armstrong scored big for the team with a second in the 100-backstroke (55.48), a fourth in the 200-freestyle (1:50.32), and as the third leg of the 800-relay. Rachel Moody finished third in the 100-breaststroke after a 1:02.92 in the morning prelims. She also swam the breaststroke on the winning medley relay.
The meet concludes at UH on Saturday (Nov. 23). Event prelims begin at 10 am, while finals are slated for 5 pm. Rice head coach Seth Huston discussed the Owls' Friday performance in the below video.
