    Swimming & Diving

    The TCU swimming & diving team earned its historic 400th win when the men’s team beat Wyoming 168-132 Friday. It was also the 400th win for coach Richard Sybesma, who has been the only coach of the program in its history.

    The men won six of the first eight events to win the meet overall, pushing Wyoming to 2-2 for the season. The women’s team, however, fell to the Cowgirls, 190-104.

    Individually, the Frogs competed well. Senior Maria Paula Alvarez walked away with a win in both the 1000-freestyle and the 500-freestyle. Sophomore Sabine Rasch also tallied wins in two separate categories, winning the 100-freestyle and the 100-butterfly. The women’s team is now 2-2 overall.

    Volleyball

    The TCU volleyball team lost 3-1 to Utah on Saturday. The Frogs dropped the first two sets but rallied to take the win in the third. The Utes returned strong in the fourth set to take the win.

    Senior Irene Hester was on point during the match, recording her first career triple-double. Hester had 12 kills, 11 assists and 12 digs.

    TCU is now 13-16 overall and 4-11 in conference play. The Horned Frogs will be back on home court Wednesday night against San Diego State.

    Rifle

    The women of the TCU rifle team won its 18th straight match by defeating Alaska-Fairbanks 4,680-4,658 Sunday. Freshman Catherine Green tied her career high, firing an aggregate score of 1170.

    Sophomore Caitlin Morrissey and sophomore Sarah Beard also scored 1,170.

    The team also excelled in the air rifle competition, tallying five of the top seven scores.

    The Frogs continue their stay in Alaska with an all-day match today. It will be TCU’s last match of this semester.
