We are excited about your interest in the North Texas swimming and diving program. The Mean Green concluded the 2015-16 season with a fourth-place finish at the Conference USA Championships, the best team finish since joining the league for the 2013-14 season.
The team earned all-conference honors in the 100 breaststroke, 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke and 200 breaststroke, including a first-place finish for freshman Rebekah Bradley in the 200 backstroke, the first first-place finish for the program since joining the league. Mean Green swimmers and divers set two program records and posted 15 NCAA B time standards in four different events. The future also looks bright for the program, as freshmen and sophomores posted team-best time in 13 of the 14 individual swimming events.
