Swimming Heads To Texas Invite

Meet Notes
Texas Invite History North Texas is competing in the Texas Invite for only the second time after finishing 5th out of 14 schools last season. The Texas Relays is one of the pre-eminent diving competitions in the nation. 
North Texas will swim against No. 3 Texas, No. 7 Arizona, No. 16 Wisconsin, No. 24 UCLA, Wyoming (RV), UC Davis and Sydney University (Australia).
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives Mary Beth Geeze and Delia Covo became the first North Texas divers since Melissa Whitaker in 2003 to qualify for the NCAA Zone Diving Meet. Covo and Geeze become the 3rd and 4th divers to reach the NCAA meet, and become the first pair to qualify in the same year. This season, Delia Covo has posted three of the five best three-meter diving scores in school history, and has twice set the school record this season, first against SMU, and then again at the SCAC Western Shootout. Mary Beth Geeze would have broke the school record at the Western Shootout on the 3-meter board, if not for Covo’s performance that day.
Two Divers Qualify for NCAA SOUTHLAKE, Texas- Mary Beth Geeze and Delia Covo qualified for the 2011 NCAA Zone ‘D’ Diving Meet in Austin, Texas at the SCAC Western Shootout. North Texas qualified multiple divers to the NCAA Zone Meet for the first time in school history and will participate in the event for the first time since Melissa Whitaker qualified in 2003. Both Geeze and Covo set school records on the 1-meter and 3-meter boards respectively.
SMU Recap DENTON, Texas- Delia Covo set a new North Texas school record with a 269.85 in the three-meter dive as North Texas fell 201-97 to SMU on Friday.
Covo broke her own school record of 262.13 that she set last season.
“Today was a mixed bag,” said North Texas Head Coach Joe Dykstra. “We had some outstanding performances today and a lot of things that were frustrating. We had some good stuff, but we were too inconsistent from event to event.”  
Seabre Pope won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 24.52, beating Emily Vavourakis of SMU by .06 seconds. 
In the 1650-yard freestyle, Dawn Richerson (17:20.73), Angie Dworschack (17:21.88) and Hilary Riedmann (17:36.91) finished 2nd through 4th.
All-Conference North Texas had a program-record 29 All-Conference selections in 2010, shattering the previous mark of 16 from 2008.
Deep In The Heart Of Texas North Texas now only competes once more outside of Texas. The Mean Green stay in-state to compete in dual meets against Houston and Rice (Houston), the Sun Belt Championships (Rockwall) and the NCAA Championships (Austin).
Rarefied Air The meet on October 23 in Las Cruces, N.M., took place at 3896 feet above sea level. Due to the altitude, all races of 200 yards or more had a time adjustment. For races of 200 yards, 0.5 seconds are subtracted, 2.5 seconds for 400 or 500 yard races, and 6.3 seconds from the 1000.
