We returned on January 4th from an excellent training trip to Aruba.  
The 10 lane, 50 meter facility provided a great opportunity for the 
groups to spread out and race one another and many women posted some of 
their fastest workout times of the season.  We also had the opportunity 
to compete against the College of New Jersey in a relay meet.

Over the course of the week, the distance swimmers tackled 25 x 100's on 
1:10 and did an excellent job with 15 x 300 on 3:50 while the middle 
distance completed 32 x 50s in their best stroke, all fast.  For the 
sprinters, they strengthened their legs through a lot of kicking and 
excelled at descending 100s and 200s to near best times.

Of course, we challenged the team once again with the 60 point set.  
Every time a swimmer hits her goal time, it counts as a point.  Once the 
team reaches 60 points, the set is over. Below are the goal times and 
the actual times.  As opposed to previous years, this set hit on a day 
when everyone was extremely tired.  What impressed the coaching staff 
the most was how they continued to fight despite their fatigue.  It is a 
set like this that makes them mentally stronger and gives them the edge 
when facing teams like Rutgers:

*No. 25 Crimson Comes Through With 150-149 Win Over No. 24 Rutgers** *

Article written by Casey Hart:

*CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - *The matchup of top-25 teams lived up to the 
advanced billing, and the No. 25 Harvard women's swimming and diving 
showed the fight of a championship team as it edged 24th-ranked Rutgers, 
150-149, in a neck-and-neck battle of two of the top teams in the 
Northeast Friday at Blodgett Pool. Junior Noelle Bassi 
won three individual events and sophomores Jaclyn Pangilinan 
and Samantha Papadakis 
took two each as the Crimson showed no ill-effects from eight days of 
hard training.

The win, which came after nine lead changes and two ties, extended 
Harvard's winning streak to 18 dual meets and came just two days after 
the team returned from its winter training trip to Aruba. Harvard (8-0) 
clinched the victory with a second-place finish in the day's final 
event, the 400-yard freestyle relay. Rutgers (3-1) split up its top 
relay team in hopes of creating two strong teams to take the first two 
spots, but Crimson junior Emily Wilson 
swam a strong anchor leg in 51.9 seconds to touch the wall in second.

"Coming off of an intense eight days of training, I am incredibly 
impressed by my team's tenacity," said Harvard head coach Stephanie 
Wriede Morawski 
"They stayed confident and took one event at a time."

The 200 medley relay, the evening's first event, was a sign of things to 
come, as the Crimson squad of Lindsay Hart 
Pangilinan, Bridget O'Connor 
and Amanda Slaight 
edged the top Scarlet Knight team by 0.02 seconds for 11 valuable 
points. Rutgers answered with consecutive wins in the 1,000 and 200 
freestyles to tie the score at 27-27.

Harvard captured three of the next four events as Pangilinan took the 
100 breaststroke in 1:04.41, Bassi won the 200 butterfly with an NCAA 
provisional qualifying time of 1:59.81 and Papadakis claimed the 
three-meter diving with 281.48 points. The Scarlet Knights, however, 
continued to hang tough and trailed by a single point, 78-77, after 
eight events.

Rutgers took a 13-point advantage with two wins, but the Crimson tied 
the score at 103-103 with a dominant performance in the 200 
breaststroke. Pangilinan's time of 2:17.61 was good for the win and an 
NCAA "B" cut. She was followed by junior LeeAnn Chang 
in second and senior Jane Evans 
in third. Harvard took the lead when Bassi won the 500 free in 4:53.57, 
another "B" cut.

After another Rutgers win gave the Scarlet Knights a brief lead, 
Papadakis scored 260.41 points to win the one-meter diving and Bassi 
swam a 4:24.63 to take the 400 individual medley. That gave the Crimson 
a 146-136 edge and enabled it to clinch the win with a runner-up finish 
in the final relay.

The Crimson now has nearly a month off of competition due to 
first-semester final exams, but returns to action Feb. 4-5 for another 
big home meet: HYP.

Jaclyn Pangilinan - Swimming
So., Clifton, N.J.

Jan. 8 - Sophomore Jaclyn Pangilinan (Clifton, N.J.) helped Harvard to 
33 points as the 25th-ranked Crimson defeated 24th-ranked Rutgers by one 
point. Pangilinan contributed to three wins and the clinching 
second-place finish to lead No. 25 Harvard past No. 24 Rutgers, 150-149 
Friday at Blodgett Pool. She swept the breaststrokes, taking the 200 in 
an NCAA "B"- cut time of 2:17.61 and the 100 in 1:04.41. Pangilinan also 
swam the second leg of 200-yard medley relay, as the Crimson won by 0.02 
seconds in 1:45.40. The Scarlet Knights split up their relay teams to 
try and take the top two spots in the 400 free relay, but Pangilinan 
helped Harvard place second in 3:29.69 to clinch the one-point team win.
