Fellow senior Kellyn Williams is off to a strong start too, scoring a personal best 260.85in the one-meter dive against LSU. Williams’ third place finishes against LSU in both the one-meter and three-meter events helped push the Razorbacks to victory, edging the Tigers 151-149.

Also making the trip are freshmen divers Alex Roman and Liana Bugslag who will be competing in their fourth meet as Razorbacks.

The trio of Maddie Fogel, Sarah Rowland, and Gina Bargiachi will take to the pool for Arkansas, completing the contingent of Razorbacks traveling to Columbia.
