Aug. 20, 2003
The University of San Diego Toreros finished an incredible 2003 swimming and diving season with a strong showing at the Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference (PCSC) Championships held in Long Beach, California. Led by fifth-year head coach Mike Keeler, a two-time PCSC Coach of the Year, the Toreros placed 38th in the nation at the NCAA Championships, setting a host of new PCSC and school records.
The Toreros were led by seniors Kaitlin Bourne and Carolyn Gorrick. Gorrick, a native of Sydney, Australia, ended the season with three NCAA provisional qualifying times in the 100 Butterfly (55.46), 200 Butterfly (2:01.60), and the 200 IM (2:03.65). She, along with Bourne, was one of the six USD swimmers named to the All-PCSC First Team, an honor they have both received throughout their four-year USD careers. Individually, Gorrick set a new school record for the fastest 100-yard butterfly in PCSC competition with a time of 55.46. Together, Gorrick and Bourne led three of the four relay teams that participated in the PCSC Championships to four new PCSC records in the (400 and 800 Freestyle) and the (200 and 400 Medley). Gorrick held a USS National Championships qualifying time in the 100 yard Butterfly, the 200 yard Butterfly, and the 200 Individual Medley and set three NCAA Championship provisional qualifying times in those same events. During the regular season, both Gorrick and Bourne swam strongly, leading the Toreros to a dual meet record of 5-4-1. Together they led a relay team, made up of freshmen Ashley Swart and Kelly Cobourn, to a USS National Championships qualifying time in the 400 Freestyle Relay (3:28.93), also a new USD record. The Torero relay efforts also swam two other USS National Championship qualifying times.
The 2003 season was made truly incredible by rising star Ashley Swart, a freshman from Honolulu, Hawaii. Swart proved her strength early on in the year and won first place in four events at the very first meet of the season. She continued to dominate throughout the season, breaking her first school record on November 2nd against cross-town rival San Diego State with a time of 2:19.66 in the 200 Breaststroke. Even in a defeat against powerhouse UCLA on November 9th, Swart led the Toreros with wins in the 1000 Free (10:13.69), 200 Breast (2:19.21) and 200 IM (2:06.03).
By November 16th, Swart had already broken three school records and held an NCAA National Consideration Time. She continued to break records throughout the season and was ranked 20th in the nation in the 200 Breaststroke with a time of 2:17.85 against UC Santa Barbara on January 22nd.
Swart would go on to become the first USD Division I swimmer to compete in the NCAA Championships (Auburn, Alabama) and placed 11th in the nation in the 400 Individual Medley with a time of 4:15.01. Swart also competed in both the 200 IM and the 200 Breaststroke at the 2003 NCAA's. Her outstanding effort at the national meet earned the freshman All-American honorable mention honors after a conference performance gave her PCSC co-Swimmer of the Year recognition. Swart was also one of six USD swimmers named to the All-PCSC first team and broke two records at the PCSC Championships in the 400 Individual Medley (4:18.27) and the 200 Individual Medley (2:02.95).
The Toreros placed third overall in the 2003 PCSC Championships and had a remarkable competition, setting six new PCSC records. Two were set individually by Ashley Swart and the other four were set by the four USD relay teams. Kaitlin Bourne, Kelly Cobourn, Ashley Swart, and Carolyn Gorrick set the record in the 400 Freestyle with a time of 3:28.93. Swart, Cobourn, and Gorrick, along with freshman Eryn Bowman, would set the record in the 800 Freestyle Relay with a time of 7:32.53. Swart, Gorrick, and Bourne, along with freshman Nicole Draa, would go on to set records in both the 200 Medley Relay (1:46.39) and the 400 Medley Relay (3:50.88).
