Swimming and Diving finds success at World University Games


Several current and former Longhorns have found success at the World University Games this week. 

On day three of the competition, former Longhorn Laura Sogar captured bronze in the 100-meter breaststroke, just two seconds behind gold. Rising sophomore Meghan Houston, a diver, also won bronze a day earlier, on Thursday. Houston competed in the three-meter synchronized event with Laura Ryan, a diver from Georgia. Earlier, Houston finished 10th in the one-meter diving semifinals. 

Sogar will compete in the 200-meter breaststroke this weekend and the 50-meter breaststroke on Monday. 

Junior Jake Ritter placed seventh in the 400-meter freestyle event on Wednesday, his only event. Teammate Jack Conger, an incoming freshman, will compete in the 200-meter breaststroke and 100-meter butterfly on Sunday. 

Another former Longhorn, Austin Surhoff, will participate in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay this coming Monday. All are competing for Team USA.
