By  | 

COLLEGE STATION – The No. 20 Texas A&M women’s swimming & diving team hosts its annual Art Adamson Invite this Thursday November 21st through Saturday November 23rd. The Aggies clinched first last year in the Invite, earning 1,507 points. The ladies will face off against Stanford, USC, LSU and Hawaii in the three-day match up.

“We’ll have some really good competition out here,” says head coach Steve Bultman. “We’ve been doing this every year for almost 20 years now. Every year we have some great swims. We’ll have some real good competition out here and hopefully we will have a really good crowd out here to support the teams.”

Last year, Anna Belousova posted one of the fastest times in the nation in the 200 Breast (2:06.26), earning a NCAA A-cut. The Maroon & White swept the top four spots in the event highlighted by returners Belousova in second and Kylie Powers notching third (2:11.47). Powers earned the second-fastest time by a freshman nationally that season. Taylor Pike and Jing Wen Quah each scored NCAA B-cut times in the 200 Fly with Pike winning the race in a time of 1:54.05, and Quah finishing in second with 1:54.92.

The Aggies are coming off of their first road win of the season, defeating Rice 158 to 102. A&M claimed first in 12 of the 14 races, including multiple 1-2 finishes.
