This WeekThe Lady Razorbacks travel to College Station, Texas for the Aggie Invitational, Nov. 19-21. Competition begins at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. as Texas A&M host the Lady’Backs, Louisiana State and Southern Methodist.
RewindBefore the off-week, the Lady’Backs fell to Washington State 119-86 despite winning six events. Seniors Zsuzsa Csobanki and Whitney Lynn each won two individual events. The Lady’Backs were without the diving squad since Washington State doesn’t sponsor a diving program.
Double TroubleCsobanki and Lynn were double event winners for the Lady’Backs. Lynn took top honors in the 500 and 1,000 free while Csobanki won the 50 and 100 free. The Washington State meet marked the third consecutive meet of the season that Lynn won both distance freestyle events. Csobanki also took double honors against Tulane and UNO.
Lynn’s LaneLynn has dominated the 1,000 free this season as she is undefeated in the event. Lynn’s also set two records in the 1,000 free. Against Drury, Lynn’s time of 10:03.64 marked the fourth fastest time in school history and her performance at Washington State set a pool record.
Up, Up and AwayFreshman Emily Gregory recorded her second win of the season in the 100 butterfly against Washington State and her time of 57.04 marks her season best time in the event. Gregory also won the 100 fly against Tulane and UNO.
Free BirdLeading the Lady’Backs in the sprint freestyle events, Csobanki won six individual events this season. Csobanki is pacing the Lady’Backs in the 50 and 100 freestyle events. Against Drury, Csobanki narrowly missed qualifying for a NCAA ‘B’ cut by .03 seconds. After competing at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, Csobanki returned to Arkansas for her final season.
A Big SplashDiving continues to consistently score for the Lady’Backs. In the one-meter event, freshman Hilarie Wilson has recorded two first-place finishes. Freshman Brieanne Kushner has two first-place finishes in the three-meter board.
