Women’s swimming and diving team travels to Bloomington, Ind., on Friday to compete in a double-dual meet with Michigan and Indiana. 

In last year’s meeting of the three teams, Texas emerged victorious after defeating Indiana 172-128 and Michigan 217-83. 

“I like that we get to race two really good teams, and I like that we get to see our kids race three weekends in a row, which is kind of unusual” said head coach Carol Capitani.

Two Longhorns were recently awarded conference recognition as senior Samantha Tucker was named Big 12 Women’s Swimmer of the Week and junior Emma Ivory-Ganja Women’s Diver of the Week. Tucker produced the 10th-fastest time in college swimming with her mark of 1:47.95 last weekend, while Ivory-Ganja won the three-meter diving event against last meet’s opponent, Texas A&M.

“October is a great time for training,” Capitani said. “This is the time when we’re getting better and we’re learning. I want us to race tough, and I want to learn a few more things about
these kids.
