NCAA Div. I Women: North Carolina Leads After Day Two of ACC Champs, But Virginia Is Challenging

COLLEGE PARK, MD., Feb. 22. THE 'Heels are still in the driver's seat but the Cavs are looming large in their rearview mirror.

Coach Frank Comfort's Lady Tar Heels, double-defending Atlantic Coast Conference champs, hold a 432.5-403 advantage over Virginia's Cavaliers, coached by Mark Bernardino, at the conclusion of the second day of
competition.

Florida State is third (374) followed by Clemson and the rest of the pack.

Carolina won three inividual races and set a pair of pool records, while Virginia's Mirjana Boseveska splashed to her second gold and host Maryland got a surprise victory in the 100 butterfly from junior Bridget Mallon.

As was the case in the 200 freestyle relay opening night, Clemson's Tigers claimed the gold in the 200 medley relay this evening with a 1:40.76 clocking, just off the ACC meet record of 1:40.69 by Virginia from the 1999 Championships. The time is fourth-fastest nationally and just misses the NCAA "A" cut of 1:40.30.

In the 400 IM, Cavalier junior Bosevska, who set an ACC record en route to her 200 IM victory last evening, got her second meet-standard with a 4:11.76
win. Teammate Amy Baly (4:15.71) was second and Maryland's Elizabeth Lavell (4:16.36) third. The victory was Boseveka's third-consecutive and she'll
be back to try and make it four-for-four next season.

Bosevska also holds the Cav school record with her 4:11.52 from last year's NCAA finals. Her swim this evening just missed the all-time ACC record of 4:11.32 by North Carolina's Polly Winde, that won in '84. Baly's pr is 4:13.69 while bronz-medalist Lavell's clocking is her pr, a Maryland school-record and 12th-fastest nationally.

The Terrapins' Mallon recorded a pr and school-record 54.01 to win the 100 fly with Florida State's Candice Nethercott (54.48) second and Clemson's Elise Thieler (55.20) third. Thieler did a 54.97 in the prelims and the top two finishers made the NCAA "A" standard of 54.54.

Carolina soph Jessi Perrequet, last season's ACC Rookie of the Year and school record-holder in the 200 free off her 1:46.24 from the Nike Cup last fall, won her specialty in 1:47.90. The win was Perrequet's
second-straight. Virginia frosh Laura Lipskis was hot on her "heels" with a pr 1:48.08 and the Cavs' Carlie Dykehouse (1:48.21) took third.

Perequet's 1:46+ ranks her 35th on the all-time performers' list and is fourth-fastest nationally this season. That time is also second-best in ACC history, ranking only behind Clemson's Mitzi Kremer's 1:44.78 that won NCAAs in '89.

Comfort is hoping his supersoph will top that time before her days of wearing Carolina blue are over, and preferably next month in Austin (site of the NCAA Championship).

Tar Heel senior Katy Hathaway won the 100 breast for the third-consecutive year with a pr and school-record 1:01.09, fourth-fastest nationally. Her old records were 1:01.30.

Hathaway will be after the ACC record of 1:00.45 by former Virginia star Danica Wizniuk — set at the '99 NCAAs in Athens — at Austin. She also holds the Carolina record in the 200 breast (2:11.94) while again Wizniuk holds the ACC meet and all-time standard (2:11.82 from '99 in this same pool).

The final individual event, the 100 back, saw UNC's 50 free champ Christy Watkins race to a 54.88-56.08 win over North Carolina State's Erika Newell. Watkins holds the Carolina, meet and overall ACC record with her 53.92 from the '00 championship.

The NCAA auto cut is 54.86 but Watkins made the standard with her record-setting 22.45 50 free win so she'll swim the backstroke at NCAAs.

Virginia, NCAA defending NCAA 1650 free champ Cara Lane leading off in 1:49.46, wonm the 800 free relay while North Carolina was second. Lane won the 500 free earlier here.
