Swimming Travels To Take On Texas and Indiana

The Florida swim teams will next face Texas and Indiana after swimming most recently against Minnesota.

The men’s swim team defeated Minnesota 174.50 to 125.50. Sophomore Caleb Dressel earned a B qualifying time in the 100 back, finishing only behind Jack Blyzinskyj.

“On the men’s side, the men’s meet was pretty competitive. Big 10 team, I believe they were third at Big 10 last year, a lot of good races. We won most of the close ones,” said Florida swimming head coach Gregg Troy.

The women settled for a tie with Minnesota with each team scoring exactly 150 points. Senior Natalie Hinds earned a B qualifying time in the 50 free and redshirt sophomore Georgia Hohmann earned a B qualifying time in the 200 back.

“Ended up with a tie meet; a tremendous job the last few events to even put ourself in a situation. It went down to the last relay but it’s real tough to win a dual meet when you don’t win a relay; so we need to get a little better in that area,” said Troy.

The team looks ahead to a meet with both Texas and Indiana in Austin, Texas.

“It’s going to go up again this week. We’ve got to see the national champion, Texas, on the men’s side and a really good Texas women’s team and I believe Indiana was one of the better teams. I think they were second in Big 10 on both sides last year. So, two real good teams that goes up again this week,” said Troy.
