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.
