The swimming team was led by senior Mandy Harms as UH defeated Illinois State (53-42), Emory University in Atlanta (63-33) and New Mexico (53-42), but succumbed to Oakland University (73-22) and host Florida Atlantic (57-38).

Harms finished third in the 200-yard freestyle and fourth in the 100-yard with times of 1:58.40 and 54.46 respectively.

Two other swimmers contributed with quality times. Sophmore Christy Milstead finished third in the 200-yard fly (2:11.44) and freshman Danielle Ruggiano posted a (2:14.70) in the 200-yard individual medley.

The swimming team is currently 8-6 in dual meets for the season.

The UH diving team showed its mettle in the Georgia Invitational. Seniors Yolanda Hernandez-Casas and Christi Christensen placed fourth and seventh place, respectively, in the meet.

Hernandez-Casas posted a score of 483.35, while Christensen got a 442.60 among 16 elite divers.

The next UH competition will be at the UH natatorium Jan. 15 against cross-town rival Rice and Big 12 power New Mexico State.
