Texas sweeps TCU en route to victory

Evan Berkowitz

No. 7 Texas defeated Big 12 rival TCU without much difficulty in all 12 events on its way to a 147-74 victory at TCU’s University Natatorium on Friday.

Texas opened the meet with senior Jessica Guro, sophomores Gretchen Jaques and Skylar Smith and junior Ellen Lobb claiming the 200 medley relay. Junior Alex Hooper followed right behind with a win in the
200 freestyle.

Texas captured one-two-three finishes in three events Friday: the one meter dive, 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke with freshman Meghan Houston, junior Marylyn Toledo and junior Lily Moldenhauer finishing first in the events respectively.

In the final two events with a victory in hand, Texas decided to decline the points and swim the 100 breaststroke and 200 freestyle events as exhibitions.

The Longhorns continue dual-meet competition Friday, Feb. 1 when they host Arizona and SMU at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center.
