COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M women’s swimming and diving team added another win to their record with a dual meet against LSU at the Student Recreation Center on Saturday.
The No. 5 Aggie women’s team (7-1) handily defeated the LSU Tigers with a 179-107 win. The women’s squad won all 16 events in the pool. Leading the effort with multiple individual victories were junior Olympians Cammile Adams and Breeja Larson, and senior diver Rebecca St. Germain.
Adams won the 200 butterfly (1:56.42) and the 400 individual medley (4:12.57), Larson took both the 100 and 200 breaststroke races in (59.77) and (2:08.72), and St. Germain swept the dives with 319.20 on the three-meter and 295.73 on the one-meter.
“The meet went well and I was very pleased,” Aggie head coach Steve Bultman said. “We had a solid lineup and some very good swims. We are still training for the SEC Championship and the girls won’t rest.”
