Women's Swimming Drops Season Opener to SMU, 131-86
Oct. 23, 2002
DALLAS - TCU's women's swimming and diving team opened the season with a 131-86 setback at the hands of crosstown-rival SMU Wednesday night at Perkins Natatorium in Dallas. The Mustangs, who placed ninth at last spring's NCAA Championships, swept all 12 events from the Horned Frogs en route to the victory.
A bright spot for TCU (0-1) was the diving of freshman Kelly Seely (Friendswood, Texas/Clear Brook) who claimed second-place finishes in both the one- and three-meter events in her first collegiate competition with scores of 265.04 and 233.25, respectively.
Sophomore Aimee Moreau (Kenner, La./St. Martin's Episcopal) also earned runner-up honors against the tough SMU squad, finishing the 100-yard backstroke in 59.02 seconds to place second.
"It was a good first meet for us," TCU head coach Richard Sybesma said. "It gives us a good idea of where we are as a team heading into a very important meet against conference opponents next weekend. I was especially impressed with the performance of our divers."
TCU will return to action when both the women's and men's squads travel to Louisville, Ky. to face Conference USA foes Louisville and Cincinnati on Nov. 1-2.
