    Day Three Results

    Chicago, Ill.- The third day of the 2004 Horizon League Swimming & Diving Championships provided some high-octane finishes right from the start of the evening finals session on Friday night at a pumped UIC Natatorium.

    Three school records, three pool records, and a league mark were shattered during the night's fast-paced action.

    The women's 400-yard IM provided the start of the excitement, with Vanessa Segovia and Youngstown State's Erin Carter neck-and-neck the entire time. Segovia and Carter traded the lead for most of the final 200 yards as Segovia closed the gap between her and the early-leading Carter at the half-way point. It couldn't have been any tighter, with Carter's 4:33.82 edging out Segovia's 4:33.90.

    Segovia's time broke her own UIC school record of 4:36.32 set in 2002.

    The men's 400-yard IM marked another strong second-place finish for the Flames as Enric Claret raced to a 4:01.31, just behind Wright State's Alex Dolgov.

    Ari Bernstein was next up to shine for UIC, placing second in the 100-yard butterfly at a school-record time of 49.38. UW-Green Bay's Zach Hansen was the only man who could edge out Bernstein, thanks to a pool record-tying 49.10.

    LeRoy Stevens turned in an awesome 1:41.17 in the 200-yard freestyle, placing third in the event.

    UIC wrapped up team highlights with another school record, this time in the women's 800-yard freestyle relay. Christine Hare, Stephanie Donovan, Emily Biancalana and Segovia teamed to race to a UIC-best 7:50.64, beating the old mark of 7:52.26 set last year.



    Hare, Donovan and Segovia were also involved in the 2003 record of the 800-yard freestyle relay.

    Other shining moments included Wright State's new league record in the same women's 800 free relay, taking the event in 7:39.91 and crushing the old mark of 7:42.43 set by UW-Green Bay three years ago.

    Cleveland State's Marianna Lionell downed the UIC Natatorium record in the 100-yard breaststroke, taking first in the event with a 1:04.98 to pass the old pool mark of 1:05.04.

    The Vikings set another Natatorium record in the night's final event, winning the men's 800 free relay in 6:45.03. The new mark replaced Cleveland State's 2002 pool record of 6:45.72.

    Earlier in the day the Flames sent four to tommorrow's diving finals. Ryan Fitzer, Mike Horwitz and Joe Scharnak moved on to the men's one-meter diving finals, while Caitlin Carey is headed to the women's three-meter finale.

    The 2004 Horizon League Swimming & Diving Championships wrap up tommorrow, February 28th with swimming preliminaries at 10:30 a.m. The men's one-meter final starts at 3:30 p.m., while the women's three-meter takes place during swimming finals at 6 p.m.
