    Both of TCU’s swimming & diving teams picked up victories against Wyoming at home this weekend. The women’s team also defeated the Rice Owls Friday night.

    The women’s team is now 5-1 on the year while the men’s team improved to 3-2.

    The men won 193.5-106.5 with strong performances from seniors Edgar Crespo and Laszlo Gyurko. Both were part of four TCU wins.

    Crespo took three individual races and swam in the Frogs’ 200-medley relay. Gyurko contributed to the 200-medley and 400-free relay wins as well as taking two individual races.

    Two freshmen, Cooper Robinson and Ricky Bradley, also notched their first career victories as Horned Frogs.

    The women’s side fought back from an early deficit to win 166-134. It was the first time in the past five match-ups that the  women have defeated Wyoming.

    “This is a great win for us, especially for our women to get only their second win ever against Wyoming,” head coach Richard Sybesma said.

    Although the Frogs fell behind early, they gained control of the meet with a sweep of the 200-free. Junior Katie Lybbert scored wins in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard, moving into fourth place all-time on the 3-meter board. Two freshmen on the women’s side, Elizabeth Oster and Mackenzie Schuler, also picked up the first wins of their college careers.

    The women’s team also defeated Rice on Friday night by a score of 159-126. TCU opened and closed the meet with relay wins and took nine individual events. The victory was the Horned Frogs’ first in their last seven meets against Rice. Junior Sabine Rasch won the 50-free and 100-free to remain undefeated in sprints this season. Sophomore Amanda Vincent, who is the Mountain West Conference leader in the 200-fly, also had two victories.

    The Frogs return to action next weekend when both teams travel to New Brunswick, N.J., to take on Rutgers, Seton Hall and St. Peter’s College.
