Freshman Lindsay Therrian won the one-meter diving event with a season-best score of 219.30 to get the day’s action under way and followed it up with the three-meter championship.
With the score tied 10-10 after the diving portion of the meet, the Mean Green took control by opening up a 36-13 lead over the next three events and held at least an 18-point advantage the rest of the way. North Texas claimed first place in 11 of the 14 events, including both relay’s.
Therrian, Bethany Pipes, Emilia Tudose, Gwen Rourke, Kathleen McManis, Kara Brock and Jaime Hosnek all won at least one event. Therrian, Pipes, Rourke and McManis all set the team’s season best times or scores in one event.
