Aggie senior swimmers finish final home meet in style

By  | 

On Saturday one of the most successful senior classes in school history swam their final races at the A&M Rec Center Natatorium as the Aggies took on North Texas in the last home meet of the season.

The 2014 senior class has five school records, three reigning conference champions, two defending NCAA Champions, and three Olympians.

The Aggie seniors led the team to a 153-97 victory over the Mean Green, finishing first in all 14 events.

Head coach Steve Bultman said, "Just a solid performance, great group of seniors wish they weren't seniors but that happens and we will bring another group in. They've done a great job of kind if continuing what the team had started to develop and kind of taking us to the next level. It's been fun to see."

Olympian Cammille Adams went out on a high note taking first in the 100 and 200 butterfly but the emotions were running high as she swam at home one last time.

"It was definitely kind of an emotional day," said Adams.
"Just looking back on the things I've learned in the past 4 years and all my memories here especially with the senior class. It's a special day."

World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Breeja Larson easily swept the breaststroke events and the senior star attributes her success to her team and her coaches.

"Having it the last time swim for a dual meet for the team was pretty surreal they've helped me grow and they've developed me into such a good competitor and I've learned so much from these girls. It's just been such a privilege and honor to represent A&M and all that they've done for us," Larson said.

Up next for the Aggie Women is the SEC Championship tournament which begins February 18th in Athens Georgia.
