Hog Places 7th, Moves to Finals
The No. 18 Razorback swimming and diving team competed in its first day of the Southeastern Conference Championship Tuesday at the Texas A&M Natatorium in College Station, Texas.
With a 10-1 showing in dual meets on the season, the Razorbacks tied with the 2008-2009 team for the best record in program history.
The women began the 3-meter diving competition in the afternoon and the Hogs started off on the right foot with the goal in mind of making it into the top eight during preliminaries to move on to finals.
In round one, Kesha Naylor landed at third place with a score of 55.5 on a inward 2.5 pike dive. Shelby Bartlett placed 12th and Hannah Bortnik placed 27th with scores of 49.95 and 43.2, respectively.
The third round gave Naylor her best dive of the day, with a perfect score of 60 on a reverse 2.5 pike.
Naylor earned a spot in the top eight at seventh place and qualified for finals. Bortnick and Bartlett placed 25th and 27th, respectively.
Naylor finished in last place in the 3-meter diving finals.
The meet will continue through Saturday.
