Swimming & Diving Sweeps Quad Meet in Houston
BATON ROUGE -- The LSU women's Swimming and Diving team (5-3, 1-1 SEC) wrapped up its final dual-meet of the season in emphatic fashion by sweeping Houston, Rice and Tulane in a two-day quad-meet hosted at Houston's CRWC Natatorium.
The Tigers defeated Houston (211.00-161.00), Rice (228.50-125.50) and Tulane (264.50-98.50) in the final tune up before the SEC Championships that begin Feb. 15 in Auburn, Ala.
"It was great to finish out the season with a few more dual meet wins," Swimming Coach Dave Geyer said. "We were able to set the tone with a win in the medley relay again and then another 1-2-3 finish in the backstroke event. At this point it is time to let our bodies recover and get ready for the conference championship in 18 days."
Bussey climbed atop the podium for her fourth victory over the weekend after a mark of 1:03.98 in the 100 breaststroke.
The Tigers swept the 100 back behind the trio of junior Jana Ruimerman (2:02.41), freshman Jennifer Reese (2:04.14) and Sepp (2:04.24).
Junior Sally Wood notched her second individual medley victory of the competition with a time of 4:21.75 in the 400 IM.
Junior Audrey Lawson touched the wall first in the 200 butterfly with a mark of 2:02.74.
"Although the platform event was an exhibition, it was good experience for us," Diving Coach Doug Shaffer said. "We competed well and performed at a level which would score at the conference championships."
