Senior Erica Totten is well on her way to the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China. Before she checks in at the Games, she had to get some workout time with the rest of the Philippine National Team. It took her 24 hours to get to the Philippines and now she is staying with the rest of her teammates before they travel to China and begin competition Nov. 13. Check out information on her international swimming career in last week’s blog. Here is what Totten had to say about the Razorbacks beating South Carolina and Missouri last week in the Hogs first home meet:"As a senior, I was itching to be there to help the team swim to victory after four years of an intense rivalry with Mizzou, but everyone managed to pull through despite my absence. I’m so proud of all my teammates back in Fayetteville! Seeing them swim fast makes me feel more confident and prepared for my own races in the upcoming days, because we have all put in the work together. So here’s a big congrats on the two big wins!"
