FORT WORTH, Texas – The TCU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams took on West Virginia on Saturday in the Rickel. After celebrating the seniors prior to the meet, the Horned Frogs fell to the Mountaineers.

Several swimmers on the women’s team had strong showings throughout the meet. Nicqueline Rettberg opened the individual events with a win in the 1000 free, while senior Devin Newton won the 100 breast and finished third in the 200 breast and 200 IM. Claire Munster won the 100 free and finished second in the 50 free. The women’s team finished second, third, and fourth in two events: the 200 breast and 200 IM.

The women’s 200 medley relay tandem of Maddie Ibrahim, Newton, Micaela Roemer, and Munster finished second with a time of 1:45.86.

On the men’s side, Radu Duican and Brendan Barry finished second and third in the 200 back, finishing in 1:51.12 and 1:51.32. Kevin Chao and Dayne Odendaal also finished second and third in the 100 free with times of 9:40.27 and 9:40.45 respectively.

“We raced well coming off of tough training trip in Florida,” head coach Sam Busch said. “The women are applying what we work on in practice in race settings. Devin had a great 100 breast time, and Nico bounced back with a great 1000 time. We still have a lot of work to do. We’re just now hitting our peak training cycle and it’s just a matter of responding to that training.”

The Horned Frogs return to action at North Texas, scheduled for Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. TCU will wrap up the regular season in Austin for a Big 12 meet against Texas on Feb. 2, scheduled for 6 p.m.
