COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou women's swimming and diving team posted wins over Kentucky and SIU and suffered a loss to Arkansas during the Tigers' Southeastern Conference opener Friday afternoon at the Mizzou Aquatic Center.
Missouri posted a 164-135 victory over Kentucky and a 215-84 win over SIU but fell to Arkansas, 197-103.
Senior Cassie Cunningham highlighted the meet with wins in both the 100 back and 50 free. Cunningham swam a 55.33 to earn top honors in the 100 back and had a time of 23.40 in the 50 free.
In the diving well, junior Loren Figueroa continued her solid form to place first in the 1-meter dive. Figueroa, who posted a score of 285.70 to win the event, has won all three 1-meter events she has entered so far this season.
In the opening event of the day, the 200 medley relay team of Cunningham, senior Rachel Ripley, freshman Danielle Barbiea and sophomore Emily Doucette finished in second with a time of 1:42.72, which was just 0.03 behind first-place Arkansas.
