Hogs Top Jayhawks on Senior Day
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.- The Arkansas swimming and diving team defeated Kansas 172-128 Saturday afternoon in the regular season finale, honoring its 10 seniors prior to the meet. With the victory, the Razorbacks extended their winning streak against the Jayhawks to 10.
The Hogs won 11 events and earned 24 podium finishes, sweeping the podium in the 100 yard freestyle. Freshman Vanessa Herrmann led the team with three individual first-place finishes, while Peyton Palsha, Marlena Pigliacampi, and Anna Hopkin each recorded two.
Palsha set a season-best time in the 1000 yard freestyle (9:53.82), just 0.28 seconds away from setting a lifetime best. Herrmann set a lifetime best in the 100 yard breaststroke (1:02.16), breaking the time she set in November.
The Hogs will return to the pool Feb. 23 in Athens, Ga. for the SEC Championships.
