Last time outThe No. 18 Arkansas swimming and diving team suffered only its second loss of the season at the hands of No. 25-ranked Missouri, falling 177-118, at the Mizzou Aquatic Center. Senior Yi-Ting Siow picked up event wins in the 100-yard breaststroke and the 200y individual medley while Leah Pierce added another win in the 200y breaststroke.
In Poppell’s Words… (On the Missouri Dual Meet)"Mizzou was an outstanding team today, this was by far their best meet of the season and full credit goes to them. They are a fantastic team and they proved that to everyone across the country today. On a lot of fronts, we were better than we had been all season as well, in dual meets, but it was not enough. Hopefully, we can come away from this meet as a wakeup call and we finish stronger in the last month of the season."
