For the second time in as many years Rice and Conference USA record holder Marie-Claire Schillinger is back competing at the NCAA Championships this Friday and Saturday (March16-18) in Columbus, Ohio.
Schillinger's provisional qualifying time in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:00.06) was accepted by the NCAA, but there is a bonus. By making the field in one event Schillinger can now also participate in the 200-breaststroke where her NCAA Provisional time of time of 2:10.42 broke the her own school and conference record on the way to winning the league's individual title. The Orinda, Calif., native competed in the same events a year ago in Indianapolis.
Similar to the event order of the C-USA Championships, the 100-breaststroke is on Friday followed by the 200 on Saturday. Results are available at the above link. The online viewing option is a subscription service.
