Stojanovska Tallies 23rd-place Finish at Women's NCAA Championships

March 18, 2004

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Freshman Vesna Stojanovska swam a personal-best time of 4:10.90 in the 400-meter freestyle to finish in a tie for 23rd at the Women's NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships this afternoon. The top 16 swimmers advanced to the finals, with the cut line being 4:10.16.

"She had an excellent swim," said head coach Seth Baron. "Anytime an athlete swims a personal-best you have to be satisfied. This is probably the worst of the three events she is competing in at the championships, so tomorrow should be very exciting."

The freshman was seeded 53rd and led the event after five of nine heats. She will swim the 200-meter freestyle on Friday, March 20, with the first event beginning at Noon ET.
