    The TCU women’s team placed first in 12 events against Tulane on their way to a 179-121 victory.

    Teammates and sisters Lyndsie and Emily Gibson accounted for five wins.

    Lyndsie Gibson swam a 56.54 100-backstroke and a 2:05.09 200-yard backstroke for her individual wins.

    Emily Gibson swam a 57.49 100-yard fly and partnered with Julia Sanders, Mackenzie Schuler and Mikayla Winkler in a 3:32.03 400-yard free relay for individual and team wins.

    The sisters also teamed up with Devin Newton and Sanders for a 1:45.58 200-yard medley relay win.

    “It’s neat when you have a pair of sisters from the same family and they combine for wins,” head coach Richard Sybesma said. “In our meet today, they combined for a total of five wins. So that was cool to see. I thought our team really competed well today.”

    Ali Bleasdell (200-yard IM, 200-yard fly), Sara Brzozowski (1,000-yard free), Julia Sanders (50-yard free), Lindsay Shabet (200-yard breast), and Winkler (200-yard free, 500-yard free) rounded out the first place winners.

    The Horned frogs failed to take first in the day’s diving events.

    The Frogs will next compete in Andrews, Texas against the University of Texas-Permian Basin on Oct. 12.
