NCAA Div. I Women: Princeton Overtakes Brown After Day Two of Ivy Champs -- February 23, 2002

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 22. DOUBLE-defending Ivy League women's champ Princeton will take a 27-point lead into tomorrow's finals after the conclusion of the second day of competition this evening.

Princeton leads with 509 points, to 482 for Brown, leader after opening day. Third is host Harvard with 414.

Coach Susan Teeter's Lady Tigers -- not to be confused with Coadch Ray Looze's University of the Pacific Tigers rather further west on the Left Coast -- won four of eight events at Harvard's Blodgett Pool, including a fourth-straight 100 back title for Katie Conroy.

Teeter's Tigers, who have won eight Ivy titles during her 18-year-career at Princeton, also got wins from Val Kukla (1000 free, 9:58.16); froshwoman Chrissy Macaulay (100 breast, 1:04.57) and a record-setting 200 medley relay foursome that included Conroy leading off, Chrissy Holland swimming breaststroke, Molly Seto on the fly and 100 breast champ Mcaulay on the anchor.

Opening night Kukla splashed to a win in the 500 free (4:53.07).

The winning medley relay time, 1:42.68, broke the Tigers' record of 1:43.27 from last season and was a pool record too. Interestngly, Seto is the sister of
former Tiger Ivy league breaststroke champ Carwei from the early '90s.

Yale scored a No. 1 finish when Susan Cooke, 200 IM winner Thursday, added the 400 title with an NCAA "B" cut of 4:17.58. Brown's Kelsey Hiatt (4:20.14) was next.

The home school's Anna Fraser scored a gold in the 100 fly ("B" cut 55.49)with Seto runner-up (55.69). Princeton's Jocelyn Peterson was fourth (56.34 with a 56.32 prelim clocking.)

Pennsylvania rookie Katie Stores got the Quakers on the board with a fast 1:49.98 200 free win, Brown's Dawn Chuck (1:50.99) taking second. Chuck was slightly faster in the morning (1:50.79).

Pricneton's Holland, who took third in the 50 free. added another bronze in the 100 breast behind teammate Macaulay and Brown's Laura Mosca, who was runner-up.

Conroy won the 100 back in 55.92 after a 55.74 in the heats. Her pr, school and Ivy League-record is 55.02 from last year's meet.

Brown's Bears, coached by former Penn State men's head man Peter Brown, won the night's final race, the 800 free relay (7:27.74 to Princeton's 7:28.11).

While in Happy Valley, Brown guided the Nittany Lions to their only men's Big 10 swimming title, and he's hoping to stop Princeton's dominance on the women's side in his new position.

He also coaches the Brown men, who'll be in action here at Harvard next weekend during the men's Ivy Championships.
