NCAA Div. I Women: #1 Stanford Downs Cal in Bay Area Showdown, 159.5-140.5 -- February 17, 2002

PALO ALTO, Feb. 16. THE road to NCAA Championshipdom begins at Stanford.

Coach Richard Quick's Cardinal women, top-ranked in the latest CSCAA Poll and undefeated for the season (8-0), thwarted any hopes Bay Area rival and No. 4-ranked Cal might have had of an upset here this afternoon with a 159.5-140.5 victory.

The Bear ladies were no match for the Cardinal, despite sophomore Natalie Coughlin's "triple crown" (i.e., wins in the 100-200 frees and 100 fly).

Stanford has now run off 13-consecutive dual meet wins since losing to Arizona in Tucson acouple of years ago, and has been atop the polls since defeating triple-NCAA champ Georgia and Texas in back-to-back dual meets the last weekend in October here.

Next up for both teams is the Pac-10 Championship Feb. 28-March 2 at Long Beach's Belmont Plaza, followed by the NCAA Championships three weeks later
in Austin.

Stanford, which has won eight NCAA titles under Quick (the most recent in 1998) and nine overall (one under George Haines in 1983), will be favored to dethrone Coach Jack Bauerle's 'Dawgs in Austin and are also picked to win the Pac-10 crown -- which it lost to UCLA last season.

With the thermometer hovering in the low-60s and the meet outdoors, superfast times were the exception rather than the rule. Still, Coughlin swam the fastest 100 fly ever in a dual meet with her 52.35 win, .01 quicker than her old record against Stanford at Berkeley last season.

Stanford won 11 of 16 events, yet interestingly, apart from diving, was unable to go 1-2 against Cal in any individual swimming event.

Card senior Shelly Ripple, defending NCAA 200 fly champ and runner-up in the 200 IM to Auburn's Maggie Bowen, scored a triple-crown of her own with wins in the 200 fly (1:57.52), 200 back (seasonal pr 1:56.81) and 200 IM (1:59.05).

Ripple could face Couglin in any of the above at NCAAs, and she's sure to see Bowen in the 200 IM in a race that could well be the highlight of the meet.

Stanford's Jessica Foschi, defending NCAA 500 free champ, won this race and the 1000 free too (4:47.29-9:59.38). Teammate Tara Kirk, defending NCAA 100
breast champ, won her specialty plus the 200 and frosh sprinter Lacey Boutwell won the 50 free. The other Card winner was diver McKenzie Murphy, who triumphed on both boards.

Cal got good efforts from senior backstroker Alice Henriquez, who won the 100 (pr 55.27 to teammate Kyoko Youkouchi's 56.44) and was runner-up to Ripple in the 200 (pr 1:57.50,NCAA "A" cut).

Golden Bear Sydney Olympian Staci Stitts was second in both breststrokes and Cal won the 400 free relay (3:25.68-3:30.03) while Stanford took the 200 medley.
