Men’s Meet

Like the women, the Texas men won every event except the events they swam exhibition, as they closed out a perfect season.

Ryan Harty had a strong showing winning both the 200 fly (1:47.45) and 100 free (45.42). We saw other big names including Clark Smith who won the 200 free (1:37.20) and Will Licon who took the 200 breast (1:58.10).

TCU claimed the final four swimming events and one diving event while Texas competed exhibition. Connor Dobbs won the 500 free (4:36.98), Carlos Hunnicutt the 400 IM (3:55.90), and Garrett Hills the 100 fly (49.61). They then won the 200 free relay in 1:24.44.

Sure hope Joe Schooling is okay!

Just Keep Swimmin'

No need to worry. Schooling is fine. If you look at the YouTube video from the day before the TCU meet when they did class relays you’ll see a blazing time on his 50 leg. (Also a further look at the depth and speed of that team before they start taper in the next week or so).


This was last regular season meet for UT senior swimmers Ellis, Gustafson, LeMaistre, Lewis, Lockwood, Martens and Murray, and diver Bowersox. They were recognized today.

We will be seeing Matt Ellis at the Nitro pool, but I will miss John Murray. I will miss watching him go psycho behind blocks. I will miss dreading his starts where he tries to “guess” the beep. I will miss guessing what he will swim next, and I will miss not watching him at Rio, swimming all Olympic events. It was fun watching you, John Murray.


You will see Matt Ellis at the Nitro Pool when he swings by to pick up his swim caps to wear at a club meet then heads back to Joe Jamail for practice
