Swimmers prepping for Texas Invitational

Matt Warden

With the first half of the 2011-2012 season coming to a close, the Longhorns stand as one of the top teams in the nation and have spread the success among veterans and newcomers alike.

Texas only has one blemish on its record to this point, as UT dropped a competition in the dual meet with Indiana and Michigan, falling by one point against the Wolverines.

Senior Neil Caskey has clearly been the Longhorn’s best swimmer, winning four individual events and being a staple on the successful relay teams. Sophomore Patrick Murphy has also been impressive, winning three individual events as well as swimming on many of the winning relay teams.

Senior diver Matt Cooper has been the most consistent member of the squad as he has won at least one diving event in every competition of the year.

The Longhorn host the Texas Invitational today against some of the best teams in the country, riding high with confidence as they look to establish themselves as the team to beat.
