NU Wildcat Women Defeat a Ranked Team for the Second Time This Year, Upending No. 23 Tennessee, 184-167

EVANSTON, IL, January 12. IN a meet that came down to the final relay and was tight throughout, Northwestern got clutch performances from a number of swimmers Saturday at the Norris Aquatics Center to defeat No. 23 Tennessee, 184-167, for the Wildcats' second dual meet victory over a ranked opponent this season, per university reports.

Leading by eight heading into the final event, Northwestern needed a victory or a 2-3 finish in the 400 Free Relay to win the meet. The Lady Vols 'A' squad held a slim advantage over NU's Ashley Welnhofer (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier) after the first leg, but Wildcat freshman Andrea Hupman (Lawrenceville, Ga./Brookwood) swam a 49.76 second 100 yards to give NU's 'A' squad a commanding lead.

Lori Schwanhausser (Ridgefield, Conn./Ridgefield) and Michelle Oeser (Eliot, Maine/Brown) brought the relay home in first to complete the meet victory for Northwestern.

"Our strategy was to go for the win instead of the 2-3 finish," NU Head Coach Jimmy Tierney said. "Andrea swam one of the fastest splits in the history of our program. We really kept up the energy and were determined to do what it took to win."

NU's 'B' 400 Relay did its part by finishing third in the event, an impressive effort considering members Katie Braun (Edina, Minn./Edina) and Amy Mueller (Tampa, Fla./Hillsborough) were just 20 minutes removed from swimming the 1650 Free.

The meet was run in a split format, with Northwestern holding an 86-80 advantage after the morning session. Hupman won the 100 Free in 50.49 while senior Brielle Bovee (Winter Park, Fla./Lake Highland Prep) earned victory in the 200 Breast with a time of 2:17.47, Braun took first in the 100 Fly in 56.22 and Mueller won the 400 IM with a 4:29.43 effort.

Tennessee won the 200 Medley Relay to begin the evening schedule, narrowing the Wildcat lead to just one point, but NU jumped out to a 12-point lead after Christy Olin (Glen Ellyn, Ill./Glenbard West), Braun, Carrera Harris (Shafter, Calif./Shafter) and Katie Welnhofer (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier) took first through fourth in the 200 Fly.

The Wildcats extended their lead with victories from Bovee (1:03.93) in the 100 Breast, Leanne Dumais (Ventura, Calif./Buena) on the 3-meter board and Hupman in the 50 Free.

The Lady Vols fought back to earn wins in the 1650 Free and the 200 IM to set the stage for the dramatic final event.

"I believe the SEC has some of the strongest teams in the country," Tierney said. "Tennessee has a traditionally great diving program, so for Leanne to get the victory in the 3-meter was huge. This is a great win for our team and we will only continue to swim against the best."

Northwestern returns to action next weekend in Tucson, Ariz., in dual meets against No. 5 Arizona and No. 25 Washington.
