During the 2016 Olympic Trials, The University of Texas Longhorns had a standout meet. The women’s team made a 3 minute video on youtube that summarizes their accomplished, and enjoyable week.
The video is courtesy of Remedy Rule an upcoming sophomore.
Women in Omaha:
Two incoming freshman Claire Adams and Kaitlin Harty, who are arguably the top two incoming backstrokers for the 2016 freshman class.
Adams broke her hand a week before trials, but still swam and showed her desire to compete. Harty, who’s older brother swims for UT, enjoyed the moment and opportunity.
Madisyn Cox, a rising senior, placed 4th in the 400 IM and the 200 IM.
Rising senior Tasija Karosas and rising sophomre Quinn Carrozza, competed in semi finals of night 6 of the meet.
Men in Omaha:
The men had stepped up at Trials, sending four of their men (past and present athletes) to Rio.
Jack Conger will be swimming on the 4×200 Freestyle Relay along with teammates Clark Smith and Townley Haas. Haas will also be swimming the 200 Freestyle individually. Former Longhorn, Jimmy Feigen, will be swimming on the 4×100 freestyle relay.
Will Licon placed third in the mens 200 breasktroke, just missing the Olympic Roster.
The future of the Texas Longhorns looks fast competitive and fun, if it is anything like the video.
