Cats Finish NCAA Competition
March 29, 2003
Austin, Texas - The Kentucky men's swimming and diving teams completed the third and final round of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships at Texas' Jamail Swimming Center on Saturday, March 29.
Senior All-American diver Clayton Moss finished his collegiate diving career with a fourth-place finish on the platform with a total of 533.60. Auburn's Caesar Garcia won the event with a total of 575.80. The fourth-place finish earned Moss his fourth-straight platform All-America selection and the 11th overall All-America selection of his career.
"We witnessed the end of a brilliant career tonight," Diving Coach Mike Lyden said. "Clayton has given us four spectacular years, he will be greatly missed."
In swimming, the 400-free relay team of junior Fernando Barros, sophomore Daniel Cruz and freshmen Daniel Farnham and Steven Manley finished 17th with a time of 3:00.61. Senior Roger Watkins finished 34th (2:02.32) in the 200-breaststroke. Farnham finished 32nd with a time of :44.33 in the 100-freestyle.
Auburn's men won the team championship, giving the university a clean sweep in NCAA Swimming and Diving after its women's team claimed the team title in Auburn last week.
