Olivia Clark takes refuge in a towel, waiting for the next round of dives. Clark cites diving coach Jane Figueiredo as a chief motivator for those tough workouts.Photo by Thomas Nguyen. W ere thinking that this is Patty Kohlmann competing in the 50 or 100 yard freestyle event, but we really can't be sure (sorry, sports fans). Kohlmann, from Mexico City, looks to represent Mexico in her third Olympic Games in 1992.Photo by Thomas Nguyen. 1 earn Captain Sheila Reeves pushes herself to limit in her breaststroke events. Reeves posted tft best times for the team in the 100 meter breaststroKe, the 200 meter individual medley and 200 mete breaststroke.Pfroto by Thomas Nguyen Diver, Swimmers PLUNGE A, small swimming and diving team came out to be challenged by the Southwest Conference, and the conference won. "We were left with a small team of about twelve girls," said Hansel. "All of them worked up to their potential." Working and training hard gave them the satisfaction accomplislling what they could. Sheila Reeves, team captain, helped hold the team together and kept the team focused during the tough season. Hansel hopes that several promising swimmers, like Carrie Clampitt, Heather Grady and Laura Berry will be able to build on this year, and return stronger for a more experienced team. The Christmas holidays helped solidify the team, some of the women dropped out, others became more focused, providing a strong, more focused group, that should pay off in better teams in the future. TheupcomingOlympicsthrewanother wrench in the works. With the upcoming Olympic trials, the entire season was moved up three weeks, throwing off the normal training routines. ' 'The highlight for the season was Olivia Clark," Hanselsaid. "We were very lucky to have her around. She has a great personality, has worked hard, and has accomplished a lot." "She went to the NCAA's (championships) for us," said Hansel. "Though she did not dive, perhaps, up to her potential, but she still finished 12th in one meter and 16th in platform diving. Any time you canscore at theNC AA's it's a pretty major accomplishment." She also performed well at the SWC Championships, placing 3rd in platform, 4th in 1 meter, 5th in 3 meter dives. Clark was the only diver the team had, and it's really hard to be motivated and train into a difficult season hard without other team member's help, support, and friendly competition. Diving Coach Jane Figueiredo was Olivia's main motivation." She did a great job," said Figueiredo. "It was a big adjustment lor her comingfrom England. Thecom petition is much more intense." "Next year is probably going to be a better indication oi what she will be able to accomplish, said Figueiredo. "I lopefully we should haveateamofthavorfourgirls,and thai should be enough motivation to create the4 success that we ex | x i11 re an her,andsheexpectsfrom herself." "Jane's great," said Clark. "She's always enthusiastic and, when it's " hard to get up at 6:30 she always is there to help me with my drylands (workouts). We motivate each other." "There's a good chance that I could make the Olympic team (for her native Great Britain), butthere'salotof competition, whoever does well will make it," said Clark. "The NCAA's didn't go as well as I'd expected, and I was a little angry about my performance, but I was really pleased with my performance at the All-American Invitational," Clark said. 'We should have four or five girls diving next year, and I hope we'll have stronger team for it." Theteam,unfortunately, finished last in the Southwest Conference, but the strength of returning team members and a strong recru iting class should keep them from making a return to the bottom of the ladder. "Itwasa learning experiemv,and all-in- all it was a good experience for me, and T hope it was a good experience for the lad ies, for they d id rally around and represent themselves and the school to the best of their ability," said Hansel. -Michael Edwards 122 Sports Swimming 123
