W-swim and dive begins Pac-10 Championships

The Arizona women’s swim and dive team got off to a great start in its pursuit of another Pacific 10 Conference Championship Wednesday, winning the opening 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:37.00.

The team, composed of seniors Ana Agy, Annie Chandler and Justine Schluntz along with junior Emma Darlington who finished two seconds ahead of No. 1-ranked Stanford.

The victory gave the UA an early first-place tie with USC at 116 points. Stanford is close behind with 112 points and California is in fourth with 108 points.

“”Tonight was a great start,”” Agy said. “”Everyone swam really well on the relays.””

The championships featured only two events on the first day of competition — the 200y medley relay and the 800y free relay — and the Wildcats finished in fourth place in the 800y freestyle relay with a time of 7:07.60.

“”It will just be our job to keep this energy going,””  Agy said, “”and to keep having fun.””

The women’s 1-meter and men’s 3-meter diving events will get things started tonight. UA junior diver Ben Grado will be a favorite to win the 3-meter event. He has won the event three of the last four times he has competed.
