Invitational on February 10, won
the event with a time of52.37.
Nebraska Sprint Coach Steve
Smith said he was pleased with
Owusu’s silver-medal finish.
“Anytime you come to this
meet and place second, you’re a
great athlete,” Smith said. “She
I fought hard in an adverse situa
tion. It was a great tactical race.”
Led by Owusu, Nebraska

ors. Eric Eshbach placed fourth
in the pole vault with a mark of
Shaun Kologinczak was fifth in
the high jump, leaping 7-2 Vz,

The sophomore class, much

definitely could use the help of
Hopkins at rover, T.J. Hollowell

Benard Thomas at rush end.

BY KRISTEN WATERS
The Nebraska womens swim
ming and diving team broke the
water at the NCAA
Championships in Long Island,
N.Y., over the weekend, ending the
season with a ^^-place finish.
“Of course we would have
liked to have swam faster,” senior
Beth Karaisco said. “Everyone
wants to swim faster. But we did a
good job there.”
The Huskers finished their
first day of competition tied with
Cincinnati in 29th place with 12
points. NU was able to rack up 26
points on Saturday, giving them 38
points for a 23rd-place finish.
“We always swim better on the
second day of competition,”
Karacia said. “But we didn’t worry
about place because we don’t have
the numbers to compete with
Stanford and Georgia and some of
the other teams.”
Sophomore Elvira Fischer led
the wayfor the Huskers by earning
two All-American honors, giving
her a career-total of three, after she
finished the 100-yard backstroke
in 1:02.04 for eighth place on
i 1 —
Friday and placed fifth in the 200
yard backstroke with a time of
2:11.27 on Saturday.
Karacia finished strong in her
final meet as a Husker as the All
American finished 44 th in the 100
yard butterfly with a time of 56.97
and placed 19th in the 100-yard
freestyle in 50.11. Karacia also
helped NU’s 200-yard medley
relay team pull in a 20*^^6 60- ^
ish in a time of 1:45.32.
“I wanted to swim faster, but
I’m not too terribly disappointed,
either,” Karacia said.
The underclassmen proved to
play a big role on the team despite
their lack of experience at the
“A lot of the underclassmen
stepped up. It may have been
intimidating for them, but they
did good,” Karacia said.
Freshman Rebecca Wolfe took
home her first All-American
honor with a seventh-place finish
in the 200-yard butterfly and
placed 32nd in the 400-yard IM.
Freshman Jacki Lobdell
walked away with an lB^-place
finish in the 1,600-yard freestyle
and a 25th-place finish in the 200
yard breaststroke, while sopho
more Keri Hehn placed 26th and
24th in the 200- and 100-yard
Georgia finished first with a
score of389 followed by Stanford
and Texas. NU’s has finished in the
top 25 in nine consecutive years.
“It really went well,” Karacia
said. “It’ll give the team more
experience for the next time
