    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Northwestern finished ninth among Universities at the 2006 U.S. Open, with freshman Emily Wong (Nepean, Ontario/St. Joseph's) earning her second finals swim of the meet during Saturday's action.

    The Wildcats totalled 27 points as a team at the event, tying Indiana for ninth.

    Wong qualified in 23rd in the 100-meter free with a time of 58.51, earning a second swim in the C-final. She did not participate in the finals, however.
