The University of Wyoming Cowboy and Cowgirl swimmers and divers competed today at the University of Texas Invite in Austin, Texas.

"I thought we swam really well for what swimmers we have here," UW head swimming coach Tom Johnson said. "We competed well for the level of competition that we are competing against."

The Cowboys currently sit in seventh place with 21 points and the Cowgirls sit in eighth place with 35 points. Ahead of the Cowboys are the No. 5 ranked Arizona Wildcats with 391 points, the No. 1 ranked Texas Longhorns with 354 points, the Wisconsin Badgers with 158 points, Sydney University with 137 points, the Longhorn Aquatic Club with 77 points and the No. 21 ranked Purdue Boilermakers with 64 points.

The Cowgirls currently sit behind No. 3 ranked Texas in first with 360 points, the No. 7 ranked Arizona Wildcats with 298 points, No. 16 ranked Wisconsin Badgers with 162 points, the UCLA Bruins with 100 points, the University of North Texas with 92 points, University of California-Davis with 87 points and Sydney University with 54 points.

Leading the way for the Cowboys was diver Kyle Bogner who placed eighth in the preliminary rounds on the 1-meter springboard with a score of 284.55. Bogners' best performance then came in the final round of diving where he placed fifth with a score of 295.05.

"Kyle dove excellent today against some really top notch competition," Johnson added. "I think he really established himself today and he just missed on a couple dives that could have put him in the top three."

Other performances coach Johnson was pleased with on the men's side was Tyler Kybartas in the 500 freestyle and Brandon Fischer in the 200 individual medley.

Kybartas placed 10th in the preliminary rounds in the 500 free with a time of 4:32.64. His 10th place finish earned him a spot in the finals where he again placed 10th with a time of 4:30.92.

Johnson was a little disappointed with Fischer's performance in the preliminary 200 IM where he placed 24th, but he was happy with how he came back in the finals. Fischer swam a 1:53.49 in the finals placing him in 17th place.

On the women's side Johnson was very pleased with the performance of the 200 freestyle relay team as well as, Shelby Bull, Lesley Young, Kelsey Conci and Caroline Wells.

"I thought that the women's 200 free relay was tremendous today," Johnson added. "I thought that over all we swam a lot better tonight that we did this morning."

The Cowgirl 200 free relay team consisting of Conci, Kenzie Hewson, Wells and Bull placed sixth with a time of 1:34.92.

Conci had probably the best day of the Cowgirls placing in the top six in the 50 freestyle. She swam herself into 11th place during the morning's prelims with a time of 23.06. She then came out and swam an excellent finals time just off her personal best at 22.95 placing her ninth.

Bull also had a good morning for the Cowgirls swimming a personal best in the 100 fly with a time of 56.25 which was good enough for 22nd place.

Johnson was also very happy with the performance of Young in the 200 IM, in which he said she was right off her personal best time in a very competitive heat. Young placed 24th in the 200 IM in the prelims with a time of 2:05.08, and then swam her way into 19th in the finals with a time of 2:03.30.

Wells also competed very well for the Cowgirls today in the 200 IM. She placed 27th in the preliminary rounds with a time of 2:05.45, which Johnson said was a personal best for her. She then swam an excellent finals time of 2:06.08 placing her in 24th place.

The Cowboys and Cowgirls will continue at the Texas Invite on Friday before the Cowgirls return back to Corbett Pool to take on the University of Northern Colorado Bears on Saturday, Dec. 4, beginning at 1 p.m.
