FAYETTEVILLE – The Razorback swimming and diving team concluded its trip to North Texas Saturday morning, with a 207-91 win over North Texas. The Razorbacks had first place wins in 14 of 16 events. 

“They swam well as a team in regards to the first 16-event dual of the season,” head coach Sean Schimmel said. “They did a good job in preparation and execution. That was what I was looking for.”

Coach Schimmel was also impressed with the leadership on the team that was evident over the trip.

“I saw great leadership from the upperclassmen, laying a foundation, how they went about their business during the weekend, being engaged with each other, and having focus especially between the pool deck and bench,” Coach Schimmel said. “They laid a great foundation and stayed focus.”

The Arkansas relay team of sophomore Anna Mayfield (San Antonio, Texas), junior Nikki Daniels (Witchita, Kan.), junior Susanna White (Forest, Va.) and sophomore Nina Drolc (Velenje, Slovenia) kicked off the night with a win in the 200-yard medley relay in 1:44.70. Daniels and White are veterans in the event and this win marked their seventh. The win was Drolc’s sixth and Mayfield’s first in the event. 

Junior Lauren Jordan of Carmel, Ind., took down the competition in the 1,000 freestyle, hitting the wall in 10:27.85 to score for Arkansas. The win was Jordan’s third in the event. 

Senior Nicole Menzel of Hilton Head, S.C., took to the water in the 200 freestyle to win with a time of 1:52.92. The win marked Menzel’s third in the 200 freestyle. 

Mayfield recorded a win in the 100 backstroke in 56.49 and also took first in the 200 backstroke in 2:00.99 to contribute points to the Razorbacks. The first-place finish was Mayfield’s fifth in the 200 backstroke. The wins marked Mayfield’s second and third of the meet. 

Daniels collected her fifth win in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:04.96. Last season Daniels became the first Razorback to All-American in the event.

Freshmen Katie Kearbey of Nevada, Mo., recorded her first collegiate event win in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:06.08 to contribute to Arkansas’ win.

White found her third event win in the 50 freestyle with a time of 23.69. White also placed first in the 100 butterfly in 56.75. The event win was her second in career history and her third win of the meet.

Senior Kesha Naylor posted another win for the Razorbacks in the 1-meter dive with a score of 260.10. That marked the 11th event win for the native of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Drolc recorded her second career win in the 100 freestyle with a time of 51.38.

Junior Julia Banach of Eilat, Israel recorded her sixth event win in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:20.27.

Menzel completed the 500 freestyle in 5:05.33 to win first for the Razorbacks, her sixth career win in the event. 

The 3-meter board was claimed by Rebecca Taylor with a score of 288.60. Arkansas’ sophomore Shelby Bartlett (Noblesville, Ind.) placed third with a score of 238.72. 

Sophomore Maddie Monroe earned her first career win in the 200 individual medley in 2:07.53 to score for the Razorbacks.

“This was good for us to get our routine down and get our timeline down,” Coach Schimmel said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do for our first SEC competition.”

The team will travel to Baton Rouge, La., for its first conference meet against LSU on Oct. 19 at 10:30 a.m. The teams last met on Oct.30, 2008, at the Arkansas Natatorium and the Razorbacks defeated the Tigers 151-149.
