Feb. 26, 2014
"We have had some awfully good swimmers come through our program and to have those kids set a school record is a really, really neat thing for us," TCU head coach Richard Sybesma said.
With the third-place finish in the event, along with a strong showing in men's diving, the Frog men sit in second place in the team standings, while the women's team is in fifth.
"We feel good about our day today," Sybesma said. "We are looking forward to Thursday with the individual swimming events. We are OK sitting in second and fifth after the first day."
Ricky Bradley (293.85) led the divers with an eighth-place finish.
"Our divers did a good job," Sybesma said.
