Arnold, Vandenberg and 200 Medley Relay Team Earn All-American Honors

March 18, 2005

The No. 10 UCLA Bruins faired well in the second day of the 2005 NCAA Championships in West Lafayette, IN as junior Kim Vandenberg, sophomore Katie Arnold, and the 200 Medley Relay team all earned All-American honors. The Bruins currently stand in a tie for 20th place (36 pts.) with Iowa, while the Georgia Bulldogs remain in first with 422.5 points.

Arnold posted the highest finish of the meet for the Bruins with an eighth place finish in the 100 Backstroke (54.30). At last year's NCAA Championships, Arnold finished 18th, just missing All-American honors. Vandenberg placed 12th in the 100 Butterfly in a time of 53.60, while the 200 Medley Relay team of Arnold, Vandenberg, Eileen Seissen and Amy Thurman placed 11th in a time of 1:41.73, giving the quartet All-American honors.

In preliminary action on Friday, several UCLA swimmers were in action. In the 400 IM, senior Kim Scarborugh placed 21st (4:18.77) and freshman Chiemi Yamamoto was 23rd (4:19.15). Sophomore Katie Nelson placed 46th in the 200 Freestyle (1:50.38), while freshman Nicolette Teo finished 22nd in the 100 Breaststroke (1:02.73), and Seissen (1:03.88) and junior Shellene Catalano (1:04.24) placed 34th and 39th respectively.

The NCAA Championships will conclude on Saturday with the 200 Backstroke, 100 Freestyle, 200 Breaststroke, 200 Butterfly, 400 Freestyle Relay and the 1650 Freestyle.
