For the second time this season, the Mean Green swimming and diving team came up short after being given a 32-point lead.

UNT was given the lead against Southern Methodist University Wednesday night in a double dual meet when the lone SMU diver was unable to perform, but could not build on that, losing 180-118. UNT was able to hold on to a win over the University of Houston 155-145.

SMU finished first in 12 out of the 16 swimming events, with UNT taking only two first-place finishes. The Mean Green where able to take six second-place finishes and three third-places finishes.

“SMU is a good swimming school and their relays are top 15 in the NCAA,” Head coach Joe Dykstra said.  “They have a handfull of Olympians on their team and they are a very good team.”

On the boards, the Mean Green was swept on the 1-meter by the Cougars, and junior Catherine Johnson took second place on the 3-meter board.  The Cougars are a premier diving team and showed three more powerful divers.

In the previous poll, SMU was ranked No. 23 in the entire nation while the Mean Green was ranked No. 4 among mid-major universities.

UNT has two weeks to prepare before it travels to Fort Worth to take on Texas Christian University.
