WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Sophomore Vesna Stojanovska posted a time of 4:48.04 in the 500-yard freestyle to lead Georgia Tech at the 2005 Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships with a 28th-place finish on Thursday morning.
“Vesna was close to her lifetime-best time this morning,” said head coach Seth Baron. “She started her final push a little late, due to a miscount of laps remaining, so she is a little disappointed. But in the long run, both her and Elizabeth have their top events remaining.”
Stojanovska, a native of Skopje, Macedonia, will also compete in the 200 free (Friday) and 200 butterfly (Saturday) at the NCAA meet. She won the 200 fly at the ACC Championships back on Feb. 19, in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center.
Freshman Elizabeth Stowe clocked a time of 4:58.74 in the 500 free to finish in 58th place for the Yellow Jackets. The Lawrenceville, Ga., native will swim her top event, the 1650 free, on Saturday morning.
