Women's Swimming and Diving in Second Place After Day One of Ivy Championships

Feb. 27, 2003

After the first day of competition at the 2003 Ivy League Swimming and Diving Championships, the Bears are currently in second place with 183.5 points, 39 behind first place Princeton, the three-time defending Ivy League Champions.

Brown got, perhaps, the two best performances of the night as its 200 free relay of junior Liz Daniels (Pittsburgh, PA), freshman Michelle Oeser (Eliot, ME), senior Inbal Hasbani (Wilmette, IL), and junior Emily McCoy (Anchorage, AK) set a new meet record of 1:32.27. The previous record of 1:32.34 was set last year at Harvard by another Brown foursome. Daniels later won the 50 free in a DeNunzio Pool record of 22.75. Brown also won the final event of the night -- the 400 medley relay -- as sophomore Jessica Brown (Royalston, MA), senior Laura Mosca (Charlottesville, VA), Hasbani, and and Oeser completed the distance in 3:46.47.

Junior Lindsay Hoban (Duxbury, MA) took fourth in the 200 IM (2:04,60), while Oeser finished in fourth in the 50 Free in a time of :23.50.

The action continues at DeNunzio Pool tomorrow (Friday) with competition in the 200 medley relay, the 400 IM, the 100 butterfly, the 200 freestyle, the 100 backstroke, the 1000 freestyle and prelims of the 3-meter diving event. Prelims begin at 11:00 a.m., and the evening finals start at 6:00 p.m.
