LAST TIME OUT

The Ohio State men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams officially opened their 2019-20 season with a two-day dual meet against the Texas A&M Aggies Oct. 18-19. Ohio State’s men’s team battled Texas A&M to the final event before falling, 153-147, while Ohio State’s women were defeated by the Aggie women, 174-124.

The women were led by multi-event winner Molly Kowal, who took first in both the 1,000- and 500-yard freestyle events. Kristen Romano added a win in the 200 backstroke in 2:02.83, and the 400 free relay team of Amy Fulmer, Taylor Petrak, Lucija Jurkovic-Perisa and Freya Rayner also took first in 3:22.33.

The men’s team took a lead over the Aggies, 66-65, after the seventh event when Alex Dillmann and Noah Lense went one-two in the 200 fly in 1:47.52 and 1:47.64, respectively, with Chachi Gustafso taking fourth. The Aggies raced back, though, overtaking the Buckeye lead on the second-to-last event – the 200 individual medley – and then clinching the team victory with a victory in the 400 freestyle relay.

Divers Jackie Brenn and Genevieve Angerame each took second on the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events, respectively, two of six runner-up efforts for the Buckeyes. Lyle Yost finished first on the 1-meter springboard with a score of 377.33.
