Swimmers hope to be at peak
By Susie Rettz
Peaking at the right time is important for the UNL
women's swimming and diving team if the Huskers want
to win' the Big 8 Conference championship, said head
coach Pat Sullivan.
The Big 8 tournament will be Friday and Saturday in
Stillwater, OkJa., and will be UNL's second meet this
week. UNL hosts Kearney State College Tuesday at 5 pjn.
in the Women's Physical Education Bldg. pool.
"We've been looking ahead all year to the Big 8 meet,"

ouuivaii tiuu. earner uus year, i cuuiuu i say wnai our
chances would be, but after seeing the other (Big 8)
teams, I think we have an outstanding chance to win."
UNL will depend on top finishers, Sullivan said,
since with only 10 swimmers the team does not have the
depth of top challengers Kansas University (KU) and
Iowa State University (ISU).
The Huskers beat KU 71-60 in a dual meet earlier this
month and placed second to ISU in a quadrangular in

depth that counts-if you have several swimmers who can
score it makes a difference."
UNL senior Ruth Spencer and freshman Ellen Hol
lander should give UNL an advantage in the breaststroke
and relays, Sullivan said. Freshman Lise Magee and junior
Deb Peterson are among the top three in the Big 8 in
backstroke, she added.
The conference meet will be the first time the Huskers
have competed in 200-yard individual events. Other
meets have had 50- and 100-yard distances, she said.
Except for sophomore Mikki Crosby, Husker swim
mers will compete in short and long distances in their
specialties, Sullivan said. Crosby, who will not swim the
shorter butterfly races, will swim the 200-yard butterfly.
The Big 8 meet will be the next to last time for UNL
swimmers to make national qualifying times. None have
qualified yet, Sullivan said, although several are within
seconds. The 200-yard medley relay team is less than
three seconds over the qualifying time.
Three Husker divers, freshmen Kristi Wells and Lois
Hayman and senior Nancy Dykes, have qualified for
nationals with a sufficient degree of difficulty, Sullivan
In the Kearney State meet, UNL divers will dive II
times to prepare for the Big 8 meet, rather than the usual
five dual-meet dives.
