Lincoln – The Nebraska swimming and diving team joined forces for a 47-21 win over a collection of 17 former Huskers in the 13th annual Alumni Meet on Saturday at the Devaney Natatorium.
The 2016-17 Huskers swept the competition in the pool, beginning with a win in the 200-yard medley relay. Senior Erin Oeltjen added a win in the 50-yard butterfly, before freshman Tori Beeler claimed victory in the 50-yard backstroke.
Junior Jordan Ehly notched a win in the 50-yard breaststroke, while freshman Allie Worrall won the 50 freestyle.
Beeler closed out the individual competition with her second victory of the day in the 100-yard IM, before helping the Huskers complete the sweep with a win in the 200 free relay.
In the well, former Husker diver Fernando Ray-Castro served as a guest judge of the competition, which did not include degree of difficulty as part of the criteria. In a team format, the oldest Husker alumni won the diving event, while current Huskers finished second and recent alumni finished third.
Nebraska opens 2016-17 regular-season competition next Saturday, Oct. 8, when the Huskers travel to Ames to take on Iowa State. Action begins against the Cyclones at 11 a.m.
