SAN ANTONIO - Rice junior Karina Wlostowska swam her career-best time in the 50-yard freestyle and sophomore Erin Flanigan registered a season-best in the 500 as both Owls recorded second-place individual finishes on the opening day of the Incarnate Word University Holiday Invitational meet Saturday evening in San Antonio.
As a team Rice is in fifth place in the overall standings with 417 points after the first day of the three-day, five-team meet. TCU leads the meet with 1,035 points followed by host Incarnate Word (869.5 pts.), North Texas (553.5) and Missouri State (506).
Flanigan coasted past her previous season-best and was close to her Rice-best for a second place finish in the 500-freestyle. The Austin, Tex., native touched-second with a time of 4:49.32. Chelsea Fong was 12th with a season-best 5:00.21.
Rice's biggest individual scoring event of the day was the 200-individual medley where five Owls placed in the top eight. Junior Quincy Christian was third with a season-best 2:04.09. Junior Michelle Gean qualified first in the morning prelims and finished fourth with a 2:04.37. Senior Kylee Talwar was sixth with a 2:05.46, followed in order by Lilly Marrow (2:06.04) and junior Madison Livingston (2:06.14).
The Owls were able to turn the fast individual performances into solid showings in both of the day's relays. The team of Taylor Armstrong, Marrow, Casey Clark and Wlostowska were second in the 400-medley relay with a time of 3:43.39, the third-fastest time in school history. The foursome of Clark, Fong, Marissa Konicke and Wlostowska placed second with a season-best 1:33.16.
Action in the Invitational continues through Monday. Sunday's schedule features two sessions, divided into preliminary races in the morning followed by event finals in the evening.
