DENTON (11/17/06) - The swimming and diving team broke a school record and head coach Joe Dykstra picked up his third and fourth win of the season against San Diego State and Centenary on Friday.
The team won nine events out of 14 and broke the school record in the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:49.84, which was previously broken three weeks ago against TCU.
