The North Texas swimming and diving team finished fifth out of seven schools in the Conference USA Championships for the second year in a row. The event took place from Wednesday Feb. 18 to Saturday Feb. 21 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Florida International University came out on top, with two-time defending champion Rice University finishing second.

The Mean Green ended day one tied for fifth place with 54 points after finishing seventh in the 200 medley relay and fifth in the 800 freestyle relay, both good for top-ten times in program history. Despite a personal best and school record time in the 200 IM by senior Krista Rossum along with top-five finishes from sophomore Samantha Scheck and junior Jasmine Abercrombie in the three-meter dive, the team finished the day in sixth place.

The team jumped one spot into fifth place in day three after another school record performance from Rossum, a second-place finish in the 400 IM. With the top-three finish, Rossum has earned an all-conference honor in each of her four years at North Texas. A team of Rossum, senior Mona Groteguth, freshman Sydney Buckley and junior Bianca Bosca finished third in the 400 medley relay. Buckley and fellow freshman Sarah Viasse each finished top-15 in the 100 breastroke with personal-best times.

North Texas maintained its fifth place ranking in the fourth and final day of the championships, finishing with 357 points. The freshman class continued to perform well. Buckley set a season-best time in the 100 butterfly, and Isabelle Morris finished eighth in the 200 freestyle.

Rossum and Groteguth combined for two fourth-place finishes in the 200 breaststroke and 200 backstroke respectively. Overall, the senior duo of combined for nine B time standards in the last meet of their careers.
