Highlighting the women’s side of the meet was Anna Elendt of Texas who picked up two individual wins. Elendt swept the breaststroke events winning the 50 in a 27.17 and the 200 in a 2:11.21. Her 200 was exactly a second faster than she was in October a year ago as she swam a 2:12.21 in October 2021. She went on to finish second in the 200 breast at NCAAs.

Elendt also was a member of the winning 400 medley relay as she split a 58.44 100 breast. The team of Chase Davidson (57.78), Elendt, Dakota Luther (52.00), and Grace Cooper (49.34) combined for a final time of 3:37.56.

Cooper also picked up an individual win on the day. Cooper won the 50 fly in a 24.66 and finished second in the 50 free (22.75) behind teammate Bridget Semenuk (22.75).

Other notable swims by the Texas women include Emma Sticklen winning the 200 fly (1:56.33), Kyla Leibel winning the 200 free (1:50.18), and Kelly Pash winning the 200 back (1:57.12).

The TCU women were highlighted by wins in the 200 IM and 400 free relay although Texas exhibitioned their swimmers by that point. Prior to Texas exhibitioning, TCU’s Rylee Moore finished second in the 200 back (2:00.12) and second in the 200 fly (2:04.19). Notably, both were faster than she was in dual meets a year ago.

The Texas men dominated the meet with five swimmers picking up two individual wins each. Highlighting the double wins was freshman Alec Enyeart who swam a 4:19.61 in the 500 free and a 8:50.62 in the 1000 free. Notably, both were lifetime best times for the freshman. He came in with bests of 4:20.49 in the 500 and 9:03.39 in the 1000.

Sam Artmann of Texas also picked up two wins, sweeping the fly events in the process. Artmann went a 21.74 in the 50 fly and a 1:46.22 in the 200 fly. His 200 fly was three seconds faster than he was in the event a year ago, showing the potential for progression throughout the season.

Like the women’s side of the meet, the TCU men picked up wins in the 200 IM and 400 free relay after Texas began to exhibition. Notably though, TCU won the three meter diving event as Max Burman had a final score of 356.03.

As pointed out in our preview, the Texas men have been well-known for diving but recently haven’t been at the same level as in previous years. Although the diving event was won by TCU, it is important to note that they were without Noah Duperre, their highest returning scorer from NCAAs, as Duperre was instead competing at the SMU Classic.

Although the Texas men were in attendance at the SMU Classic, the women’s team was not. Notable names that did not compete for the Longhorn women were US Olympians Erica Sullivan and Lydia Jacoby.

Texas won the 1m diving event (by a freshman!) and overall won diving based on finishes on 1 and 3m events, not TCU.

Actually, TCU men won the 400 FR. Not a sweep by any means; although I understand Texas did not stack/swim any of their top swimmers.

By 0.01! It was a very nice race to finish the meet and TCU went back to the bus with a bit of enthusiasm

Texas men won diving also.
1m placed 1,3,4,5
3m placed 2,3,5
should give TX 22 to TCU 15 or 16.
I never knew if you place 4 or more in top 5 does the 5th place point go to other team or go away.

Any idea why Erica Sullivan and Lydia Jacoby didn’t swim?

Olivia Bray was absent too. Not sure what’s up

Erica posted on Instagram that she had COVID. It potentially infected more than one member of the team.

Minor injury.

If you follow Lydia Jacoby on IG, it’s not due to Covid. Seems she is loving being in TX and bonding with her teammates. I don’t know when she has time to attend class between all of the restaurants, concerts and football games.

Jacoby seems like she is starting a modeling career. I think she got swept up in fame from 2021.

No other swimmer at Texas has their own bobblehead.
