Mean Green Fall At No 6 Texas A&M As Covo Has Career Day
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The No.6 Texas A&M Aggies proved to be too powerful for the Mean Green as they took the final dual meet of the 2009-10 season, 178-112.
"I'm proud of the way my girls came out and fought today," head coach Joe Dykstra said. "They have shown a great amount of fight all dual season long, and now it's time to turn our head to the conference championships in a little over a week."
Sophomore diver Delia Covo had another record day on the boards as she broke her own school record from the three-meter spring board. Covo totaled a score of 262.13, which was good enough for second place and nearly four points better than the previous school record of 258.38 against the University of Arkansas.
From the one meter board, Covo scored a career high 246.23 which was high enough for another second place finish.
Senior Kristen Hempleman had one of her best outings of the season, coming in second twice with two season best times.
In the 400-yard individual medley, Hempleman shaved over four and a half seconds off of her previous season best by touching the wall in 4:35.01.
Then in the 200-yard breaststroke, she recorded a time of 2:24.13, over two seconds better than her 2009-10 previous best.
Next up for the Mean Green will be the Sun Belt Conference Championships. The four-day event will take place in Nashville, Tenn., from Feb. 17-20. For more information, consult SunBeltSports.org.
