COLUMBIA, S.C. –
The South Carolina women’s swimming and diving team (3-2, 2-2) fell to the No. 8 Gators, 139-104 in dual meet action at the Carolina Natatorium, Saturday morning.
“I think we had great effort all the way around from both our squads,” said USC Head Swimming Coach Don Gibb. “We had some nice aggressive racing today and really good fan support.
For the USC women’s squad, sophomore Anna Nyiry won the 50 free (23.63) and freshman Heather Skaggs earned a first place finish in the 100 free (51.15). Also earning a first place finish for the Gamecocks was freshman Capi Adams in the 200 IM with a time of 2:06.73.
On the women’s side, sophomore Holly Hodges won both the one-meter and three-meter diving competitions with scores of 275.33 and 265.05 respectively.
“Holly did a nice job on both boards and she is doing a good job with some of the things she is working on,” said Coach Sherritt. “I would like to see her begin to dominate a little more and just edge out a win every night.”
The Gamecocks will be back in action next Friday at the Carolina Natatorium for a 5 p.m. dual meet vs. in-state rival Clemson.
