Competition was fierce this weekend at the SMU Classic in Dallas. Although only nine of the Longhorns competed, they still finished on top.
After finishing the first day with a 10-point lead over the rest of the field, Texas widened the gap with some strong performances on Saturday, finishing the meet with a team-high 350 points.
Captain Karlee Bispo, who won both the 100-yard (49:45) and 200-yard freestyle (1:47.35), led the ladies. Junior Laura Sogar also came up big, winning both the 100-yard (1:01.99) and 200-yard (2:13.10) breaststroke. The other Longhorn individual winner was senior Leah Gingrich in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:59.60.
As a team, Bispo, Sogar, Lily Moldenhauer and Kelsey Amundsen captured both the 200- and 400-yard medley relays with times of 1:42.32 and 3:42.79, respectively. Bispo, Gingrich, Moldenhauer and Katie Riefenstahl teamed up to win the 800 freestyle relay with a time of 7:16.74.
The women look forward to building on this success as the whole team unites for duals against Indiana and Michigan on Oct. 28 in Ann Arbor.
