IRVING, Tex. - After winning three individual events, competing on four winning relays, and setting two new school records, Rice junior Casey Clark has been named the Conference USA Swimmer of the Week for Nov. 19-25, the league office announced Tuesday from its headquarters in Irving, Tex. Western Kentucky freshman Amy Crayne was named C-USA Diver of the Week.
Over the weekend Clark helped pace the Owl swimmers to the team title at the University of Houston's Phill Hansel Invitational (Nov. 21-23). At the three-day, 18-event, swim meet she made the NCAA provisional qualifying standard in both butterfly events with new school record times of 52.85 in the 100, and 1:57.28 in the 200. Clark won the 100-freestyle over a field of 37 other entries with an NCAA provisional time of 49.62. The Spring, Tex., native was also a member of four winning Owl relays that posted some of the best times in the conference so far this season, including the 400 freestyle relay (with a school record time of 3:19.80), the 800-free and both the 200- and 400-yard medley relays.
This is the third C-USA Swimmer of the Week honor for Clark this season, and the fourth of her career. Including Rice sophomore Shelly Patton`s earning the C-USA honor on Nov. 5, Owls have now won the league award in four of the last six weeks.
Clark will be one of five Rice swimmers who is scheduled to compete individually at the Texas Longhorn Invitational on Dec. 6-7. After a break for final exams of the semester, the full Rice swim team will next be in action on Dec. 20 in a dual meet against nationally-ranked Texas A&M in College Station.
