COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou women's swimming and diving team suffered a 163-120 loss to No. 4 Texas A&M Friday afternoon at the Mizzou Aquatic Center. The Tigers fell to 1-3 in dual meets and 0-2 against Southeastern Conference foes.
The meet started off with a bang with a back-and-fourth race in the 400 medley relay. The Aggies raced out to an early lead but a blazing 100 fly split by junior Danielle Barbiea over Olympian Cammile Adams put the Tigers ahead going into the final leg. Texas A&M's Lili Ibanez Lopez, an All-American, edged out sophomore Anna Patterson in the free leg as the Aggies narrowly defeated Mizzou, 3:43.45-3:43.61. The Tigers' time was three seconds faster than the team swam last week against Kentucky and Southern Illinois.
Barbiea continued her excellent meet with a win in the 100 fly. The junior clocked a season best time of 54.24 to take the win. She also took second in the 50 free with a swim of 23.24, just off her 2013-14 best of 23.11.
In the 100 breast, freshman Katharine Ross and Lauren Stoeckle earn second and third-place finishes, respectively. Competing against two-time NCAA champion Breeja Larson, Ross knocked 0.22 off her season best with a time of 1:01.32, which stands as the sixth-fastest time in the country this year. Stoeckle cut a second off her previous season best with a swim of 1:03.80.
Patterson knocked three seconds off her season best time in the 200 fly as she took third in 2:06.21.
In the final event of the day, Mizzou's A 200 free relay team was barely outtouched by Texas A&M's top team, 1:34.36-1:34.47, although both teams swam in exhibition. Barbiea took the Tigers out in 23.11 but the Aggies gradually inched back to touch the wall just 0.11 faster.
The Tigers return to the pool on Friday, Nov. 8 when the team travels to Springfield, Mo., for a dual with Missouri State at 5 p.m.
