AUSTIN, TexasIn the second day of its meet against SMU and Texas at the Lee and Joe Jamail Center in Austin, Texas, the UA men’s team split its double-dual meet, topping SMU 233-111 while falling to Texas, 186.5-155.5.  On the women’s side, Arizona was downed 189-156.


Swimming the mile (1650 free) for the first time this season, Lindsay Seemann shows to be rebounding from a bout with mononucleosis over the fall semester nicely as the freshman Olympian from Canada placed second with a time of 16:59.68.


In the women’s 200 medley relay, the team of Sarah Denninghoff, Ellyn Baumgardner, Dana Christ and Margo Geer finished first with a time of 1:41.00. Over the anchor leg, Geer split a 22.44 to lead her team to the win.


On the men’s side of the 200 medley relay, the team of Cory Chitwood, Kelley Wyman, Adam Small and Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or could not run down Texas as they placed second in 1:29.12.


Alyssa Anderson and Monica Drake finished second and third, respectively in the 200 free, recording times of 1:48.41 and 1:49.28. Karlee Bispo of Texas took first place in 1:47.92.


After winning the 200 backstroke on Friday, UA’s Hannah Ross came back and placed runner-up in the 100 backstroke with a time of 55.46.  The Longhorns’ Lily Moldenhauer was first in 54.51. Cory Chitwood was just edged out in the men’s 100 backstroke, falling to Cole Cragin of Texas while swimming a 48.69.


In the closest finish of the afternoon, Texas’ Nick D’Innocenzo squeezed ahead of Arizona’s Kevin Munsch by one tenth of a second to finish in first place in the men’s 100 breaststroke with a time of 55.01.


Following the women’s 200 butterfly, Texas began exhibitioning its results for scoring purposes which in turn gave Arizona the win in the event. Of the finishes, freshman Margo Geer was first in the 50 freestyle with a time of 23.23 and Alyssa Anderson won the 200 I.M. in 2:02.81.


In diving events, Texas claimed the top spots on the men’s and women’s side with Drew Livingston winning the men’s 3-m with a score of 421.40 while Shelby Cullinan won the women’s 3-m with a 309.10.  UA’s Andres Guerra placed third on the men’s side while Ainsley Oliver was fourth for the Arizona women off the 3-m board.


On February 12, Arizona will host Arizona State in its final dual meet of the regular season.  Events will begin at 1 p.m. MST at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center.
