  • Complete Results

    HOUSTON (Nov. 18) -- Led by true freshman Falon Hopkins and sophomores Stacey Ebeling and Elissa Nelson, the University of Houston swimming and diving team defeated state-rival TCU by a score of 145-117 Thursday night in the UH Natatorium. The trio each won two events to help pace Houston to a total of nine victories in the 14-event dual meet. Houston improved to 4-4 in dual meets this season.

    Ebeling won both breaststroke races and led a key 1-2-3 sweep in the 100-yard event early in the meet. Nelson pulled off a tough distance double by winning both the 1000- and 500-yard freestyle while Hopkins dominated the sprints. The local standout from nearby Lamar High School showed that her 50-free win at Texas A&M last Saturday was no fluke, winning the 50 again with a career-best time of 24.48. She then edged teammate Christy Milstead in the 100-yard butterfly, who was also a Cougar winner earlier in the 200-butterfly. UH senior Mandy Harms won the 100-free and then teamed with Hopkins, Ebeling and freshman Jessica Blake to win the 200-freestyle relay.

    TCU sophomore Jamie McCurdy was impressive in winning three events including the 200-free, 200-backstroke and 200-individual medley. Two springboard diving events were exhibitioned by Houston.

    The win avenged a 147-94 loss to the Horned Frogs last season in Fort Worth. Houston will next face the University of North Texas at home on Friday, November 19. The dual meet will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the UH Natatorium.
