Women’s swimming and diving outmatch Aggies

Sara Beth Purdy

After two weeks of broken records by sophomore Laura Sogar, don’t be discouraged by the fact that she clocked a time slightly slower than her most recent “fastest in the nation” record. Despite this, Sogar along with juniors Karlee Bispo and Leah Gingrich, lead the Longhorns to a solid 163-137 win over the Aggies. With this win, Texas now holds a commanding 3.5-1.0 lead over Texas A&M in the State Farm Lone Star Showdown.

Strong performances were turned in across the team. Freshman Lily Moldenhauer continued to impress by coming home with a win in the 100 backstroke as well as several key second place finishes while sophomore Kelsey Amundsen made a name for herself by significantly contributing to the Texas point total. Sophomore Maren Taylor led the team coming in third in the one
meter dive.

“As expected, it was a battle,” said assistant coach Jim Henry. “The Aggies always bring it, and our team did as well. It was a total team effort. There were several outstanding individual efforts, but we certainly picked up the win today as a team.”
