F IVE AND COUNTING AS HORNS SWIM TO NCAA TITLE Lady Longhorns win nations championship again in their owl backyard The University of Texas women ' s swimming team won its fifth consecutive NCAA Cham- pionship, March 19, as the Horns held off the University of Florida in an extremely close meet. Texas entered the NCAA meet two weeks after winning their sixth consecutive Southwest Conference title in Fayetteville. The Horns won easily in Arkansas, finishing with 1,063 points to second place SMU ' s 575. Arkansas finished third with 504. At the SWC championship, 17 Longhorn swimmers and divers qualified for the NCAA meet, including four new sprinters. Seniors An- nette Cowley and Colleen Griffin, junior Peggy Meagher and sophomore Jeanne Doolan all qualified as sprinters. Texas qualified a swim- mer in every event, 14, except the 100 butterfly. Two swimmers though, freshmen Kelley Davies and Kristi Kiggans, qualified in the 200 but- terfly. After Thursday, March 17, the first day of competition, Texas held a slim lead of 37 points. Florida was right behind, and Longhorn Coach Richard Quick had good reason to worry. After Friday ' s competition though, the Horns ' lead swelled to 93 points (474 to 381) and the loss of senior Tracey McFarlane would not come back to haunt Texas. McFarlane strained a groin muscle during her win in the 100-yard breaststroke and she was unavailable for action beyond Friday. Her time of 1:51 in the 100 breaststroke broke the U.S. Open and NCAA meet records in the event, as well as the American record. McFarlane is a Canadian citizen, so she was ineligible to add the American record to her titles. " The worst part is that this was the last tiirl I ' ll ever swim the 100 breaststroke, " McFarlarl said. " I ' ll never have the American record. I alii wanted to be the first to break a minute. I can | do that either. " Despite McFarlane ' s injury, Texas won thnj of eight events Friday night. Texas ' 200 freil style relay team of freshman Leigh Ann Fette I sophomore Carrie Steinseifer, junior Courtml Madsen and Griffin twice broke the U.S. Opeil American, NCAA and NCAA meet and pal records in the event with a time of 1:30.2 That time bettered their earlier swim Frids| morning.
