Panthers Finish 6th at UT Invite

The UTHS Girls Swim Team finished in a very competitive 6th place finish at the 11 team UT Panther Invite.  The meet was won by Dunlap with 284 points.  The Panthers finished with 121 points, just one point out of 5th, and 3 points out of 4th.  The Panthers were lead by Abby Jansen who racked up a third place finish in the 200 Free (2:03.98), and a second place finish in the 100 Free (56.13).  Other top six finishers were Caitlin Dassow (100 Fly-5th-1:03.47), 200 Medley Relay (Jansen, Brittni LaFountaine, Dassow, Brandi LaFountaine-5th-1:59.81), and the 400 Free Relay (Dassow, Kendra Diamond, Brandi LaFountaine, Jansen-3:56.81-4th).  “It was a very competitive swim meet, fast and deep.  I thought we competed real well as this was a hard week of practices being the first week of our fall break.  I was really pleased with our divers as this was their first meet doing 11 dives and they completed them all.  This will really help us in our championship meets later in the year.  Brittni LaFountaine and Natalie Davis really had good days for us also.”
