O'Brien Wins Another Title, Cal Poly Finishes 5th at MPSF Finals

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – For the second day in a row, Rachel O'Brien won a title at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship, leading the Cal Poly women's swimming and diving team to a fifth-place finish Saturday night. 

O'Brien (right) highlighted the conclusion of the four-day finals held at East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park by breaking the meet record in the 200-yard butterfly, which she won in a school-record time of 1 minute, 57.27 seconds to gather 20 points in the team standings.

The senior's title came on the heels of her championship win in the 100 butterfly on Friday evening. In both events, her times comfortably met the provisionally qualifying standard for the NCAA Championships. 

Cal Poly finished the meet with 374.5 points. UC Davis wrapped up the finals with 673.5 points to supplant BYU as the conference champion. 

The Mustangs also secured a fourth-place finish in the 200 butterfly, as Belen Enguidanos tallied 15 points, finishing in 2:02.05. 

Cal Poly picked up 28 points in the 400 freestyle relay, finishing in fifth at 3:25.81.

A trio of Cal Poly swimmers scored in the 100 freestyle, as Rachel Cleak placed seventh in 51.14 seconds (for 11.5 points), Jill Jones was 10th in 51.10 (for seven points) and Andrea Voigt came in 15th in 52.3 (for two points).

In the 200 backstroke championship final, Katrina Anderson earned 11 points for the Mustangs by finishing in eighth place at 2:02.69. Amanda Maffris placed 11th overall in the event (also at 2:02.69, in the consolation final) to add six points.

Two Mustangs scored in platform diving, as Grace Greenwood placed eighth with a score of 175.65 (for 11 points) and Sami McIntyre was 14th at 172.65 (three points).

Angie Haven finished 11th in the 200 breaststroke for the Mustangs in 2:18 to post six points. Nicole Antoniuk added a 12th-place finish in the 1,650 freestyle at 17:23.9 to tally five points.
