Transcript Swimming and Diving Briefs Even with a disappointing fifth place finish in the Southwest Conference, the women's swimming and diving teams managed to produce many individual highlights. The Cougars performed well, with solid outings from Ail-Americans Helena Pirow and Teresa Rivera, both seniors, high scoring from a strong diving team and encouraging numbers from a large group of newcomers. Swimming coach Phill Hansel, who almost single-handedly developed the women's swimming program 12 years ago, stressed this year the improvement of each individual swimmer and his success can be seen in the exciting performance of Maija Airas at the SWC championships. Airas, a sophomore from Helsinki Finland, took the 50-yard freestyle in 23.08 seconds, the third fastest collegiate time in America before the NCAA championships. In the 50, she beat three Ail- Americans, 1984 gold medalist Carrie Steinseifer, and eventual national champion Leigh Ann Fetter, as well as taking the Cougars' top times in six other events and placing fourth overall in individual SWC scoring. Airas also has an outstanding chance to compete in the 1988 Olympics for her native Finland. Her teammate, Helena Pirow, broke her own school record in the 100-yard breaststroke and qualified for the NCAA championships. The diving team, coached by former Olympian Dave Parrington also had several great individual performances, including a fifth place finish for freshman Hanneke Farber at the SWC championships and still maintained a 4.0 GPA for All-Conference honors. Freshman diver Linda Pesek had an outstanding season, setting school records for both the 1 and 3 meter springboard. She finished second in 1 meter and third in 3 meter at the SWC championships and placed 13th at the NCAA championships to qualify for the United States Championships. klflr Hi*- HHN Junior Rebecca Morse is one diver to look out for next year after breaking the school record by winning the 3 meter springboard for the eleventh time in her college career this year, and could take the record for overall wins in diving for a Cougar next season. She also has a good chance to be named an Ail-American for '88-'89. Phill Hansel, has coached the swimming team for twelve years. Photo by Michael Williams. With the development of several newcomers and exciting individual performances, this year sets the stage for another outstanding year for coaches Phill Hansel and Dave Parrington to retake their teams back to the top twenty teams in the NCAA's and back to the top of the Southwest Conference. — Michael Edwards 166 University of Houston
