Perez 13th at NCAAs, makes FIU history; open football practices

Senior Sonia Perez Arau's 13th place in the 400 individual medley Friday night, in 4:10.17, at the NCAA Championships was the first time an FIU swimmer scored points at the NCAA meet.

The previous highest placing by an FIU swimmer was 18th by 200 breaststroke school record holder Sara Giavannoni in 2007. 


FIU decided to open the doors to those willing to skip Saturday morning cartoons (they still have those on some channel, right?) for spring football. The practices Mar. 22 and Apr. 5, which start at 10 a.m., will be open to the public just like the previous practices essentially were to students who had classes at La Cage.

Perez makes 400 IM final

Swinning in her strongest event, senior Sonia Perez Arau made Friday night's final in the 400 individual medley. Perez's 4:10.27 brought her home 16th in the preliminaries, getting into Friday night's B group.

Junior Johanna Gustafsdottir finished 48th with a 54.82 in the 100 backstroke. Like Perez, Gustafsdottir has Saturday's 200 backstroke remaining. 

FIU Pro Day

It's not on the NFL.com website list of Pro Days yet, but FIU's will be April 3. That's when defensive linemen Greg Hickman and Isame Faciane run through football's Underwear Olympics for NFL scouts.
