Complete Results

Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina and Clemson fought a close battle Friday in the Carolina Natatorium, but in the end the Gamecocks were narrowly defeated by their rivals.

The meet came down to the wire with the results being determined by the final event of the meet, the 400 freestyle relay. Entering the relay the Clemson men were leading the South Carolina men by seven points, and the Clemson women were ahead by only three points. Although the South Carolina teams showed a strong effort in the relays, they fell just short of pulling out the victory. In the end, the Clemson men won by only two points, 150 to 148, and the Clemson women won by eight points, 154 to 146.

“We had good races. I think our depth is what hurt us, I think there were a couple of events where we didn’t have as many bodies as we needed in those particular events, but I thought that we raced well. We had great races out of Lindsey Tiberio, Kyle Cormier, Dan White, and Christy Williams,” said head coach Don Gibb. “It was a good competitive meet, and we are little bit tired right now, but we are looking forward to next week.”

Junior freestyler Dan White was one of South Carolina’s strongest competitors of the meet, winning the 1000 free by over ten seconds. White also won the 500 free. Senior Lindsey Tiberio also had a strong meet, winning both the 100 breaststroke and the 200 breaststroke. The Carolina divers also had a dominating performance with Lyndsey Havens and Sarah Mory taking first and second respectively on both the one- and three-meter boards. David Ovelson and Corry Christian also took first and second respectively on both boards. Overall the Gamecocks won 18 of the 32 events.

Carolina will next face the Savannah College of Art and Design at home in the Carolina Natatorium on Saturday, November 11, 2006 at 12:00 p.m.
