MINNEAPOLIS -- The BYU women's swim team capped off a remarkable season at the 2007 NCAA Championships where the Cougars placed 40th overall and set two BYU and Mountain West Conference records.

"Angela (Goodson) came ready to race," said BYU women's head swim coach Stan Crump, the 2006-07 MWC Women's Coach of the Year. "She had great swims all week, and I was really proud of how she did."

All-American Angela Goodson was the only swimmer to compete at the NCAAC. She competed in the 200 IM and the 100 and 200 butterfly events. Goodson's time in the 200 IM (2:02.69) was better than her MWC title time (2:03.16) two weeks ago. In the preliminary round of the 100 fly (53.26), she broke the BYU and MWC records and qualified to swim in the consolation heat. Goodson ended up finishing 15th overall with a time of 54.24. Goodson capped off the last day setting BYU and MWC records in the 200 fly. Goodson was seeded 55th in the 200 fly going into the Championships but finished 22nd with a time of 1:59.29.

All-MWC teammate diver Tawni Jones, who competed in both the 1- and 3-meter dives, joined Goodson at the Championships. Jones scored 250.55 points in the 1-meter, placing 36th overall, and 292.90 in the 3-meter, placing 27th overall.

"Tawni (Jones) has been competing the last three weeks in a row," said BYU dive coach Keith Russell, the 2006-07 MWC Dive Coach of the Year. "She did really well. I could tell she looked tired, but it was really good to get here and see her compete."
