INDIANAPOLIS - Mizzou senior Dominique Bouchard concluded her decorated Tiger career with a second-place finish in the 200 back at the 2013 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championships Saturday, March 23 in Indianapolis. Missouri ended the Championships in 14th place with 71 points to match 2012's finish as the best in program history.
Bouchard clocked a swim of 1:50.06 in the championship final to take second and record a new school record and the seventh fastest time in NCAA history. The senior's runner-up finish matches the second-place showing as a sophomore and 2011 and bettered her third-place finish in 2012. With the finish, Bouchard secured her fourth career individual NCAA first team All-America honor, which is the most for a Tiger swimmer in program history. She also ended her Mizzou career with three honorable mention accolades, all in relays.
Missouri closed the meet with a sixth-place finish in the 400 free relay B final. The team of senior Cassie Cunningham, sophomore Emily Doucette, sophomore Danielle Barbiea and freshman Anna Patterson clocked a 3:16.99 in the final.
The Tigers ended the NCAA Championships with a two first team All-Americans, Bouchard and redshirt sophomore diver Loren Figueroa. Mizzou also had six swimmers earn All-America honorable mention honors: Barbiea (five), Cunningham (five), Patterson (three), senior Amanda Masters (two), Doucette (two) and Bouchard (one).
