Dec. 20, 2013Casey Clark, Cora McKenzie, Chelsea Fong and Kim Steinhouse won the 400-freestyle relay with a time of 3:29.26 to close out Friday's dual meet at No. 1 ranked Texas A&M. The Aggies won the meet by a final team score of 157-96.
The 4x100-relay, the final event of the day's meet, was the only race Rice won against the nation's No. 1 ranked swim team. The Owls led for all four stages of the relay on the way to the win. The 3:29.26 winning time was still not as fast as the squad's eye-opening school record-breaking mark of 3:19.80 that the Blue & Gray set a month ago at the University of Houston Invitational.
In addition to swimming the lead leg of the relay, Casey Clark also posted a pair of second place individual finishes in both butterfly events. The junior from Spring, Tex., swam a 2:01.28 in the 200-fly before coming back later in the meet with a 54.49 in the 100. Fellow junior Erin Flanigan notched a pair of second place finishes in both distance races. The standout from Austin registered a 10:13.03 in the 1,000-freestyle followed by a 5:01.18 in the 500.
Chelsea Fong was third in the 50-freestyle with a 23.87 that is her best mark of the season. Junior Rachel Moody placed third in the 200-breaststroke with a time of 2:24.38. The full list of results are available online at the above link.
The Rice swimmers are now 2-2 in four dual meets this season, with both of the team's losses hands of nationally-ranked programs Texas A&M and Texas (and both away from home). The Owls have a break from training during the upcoming holidays then return to action next month. Rice next competes at former Southwest Conference rival Arkansas on Jan. 25, followed by a dual meet at Arkansas-Little Rock on Jan. 26.
