Fort Worth, Texas - The TCU men's swimming team won four events, but fell to the No. 3 Florida Gators, 141-97, today at the University Recreation Center. Junior Teylor Arboleda led the team as he picked up a pair of individual titles for the team and he was also a member of the runner-up 200-medley relay.
Arboleda picked up his first victory in the 50-freestyle in the fourth event of the day. The transfer from Indian River Community College touched the wall in 21.79 seconds to claim the title. Three events later, the junior got his second victory of the competition when he won the 200-butterfly with a time of 1:53.00. Freshman Kyle Edens was the runner-up in the event with a mark of 1:54.86.
Cameron Allred also had a successful day for the Frogs as he claimed the title in the 200-breaststroke in 2:08.29 seconds. The true freshman also was the runner-up in the 200-individual medley when he finished with a season-best time of 1:57.75.
Junior Kelly McCain continued to thrive in the diving events. In the three-meter springboard event, McCain tallied 318.45 points to win the competition by just under nine points over Vitor Assuncao of Florida.
