DENTON, Texas (10/4/08) - The North Texas Mean Green Alumni Meet was all smiles for everyone at the Pohl Recreation Center Saturday afternoon. A nice crowd along with plenty of former swimmers made for a great day of swimming.
After last night's North Texas Relays, the Mean Green were back in action once again.
North Texas' current team faced off with the alumni who featured around 25 swimmers including Bethany Pipes, Hannah Bakke, Bonnie Garcia-Meitin, Charlene McClain, Alesha Olesen, Gwen Rourke, and Jaime Hosner.
The meet was "loosely judged" with a few performing antics such as turning around before they got to one end like Angelica Gentile did. Some treated the events like a relay by jumping into the pool early before others finished their turn.
"I was very excited about this meet today," said North Texas head coach Joe Dykstra. "I enjoyed watching all the swimmers compete and have a good time."
The Mean Green gets back in the pool next Friday, October 10 at College Station, TX where they face Texas A&M and Rice.
