AMES, Iowa – The 21st-ranked Missouri women’s swimming and diving team came away with a 190-105 victory over the Iowa State Cyclones Saturday .

At least two Tigers finished in the top two spots in nearly every event and 12 total wins.

“I knew if we could double up on points in the early races we would have a good shot of winning the meet,” Missouri coach Brian Hoffer said. “It’s always good to get a Big 12 win, and now we have to get back in the pool on Monday and get ready for another tough meet.”
Missouri's Colleen Gordon won the 200 free race in 1:49.61, setting an ISU pool record, followed by Kim Jasmer in second in 1:49.80 and Caitlin Connor in third in 1:55.54. Gordon then went on to win the 100 butterfly.

Dominique Bouchard was the next Tiger to double-up  Saturday, first taking the 100 backstroke in 55.72 seconds. In the 200 backstroke,  Bouchard won again.

Rachel Ripley earned her first two individual titles this season, first in winning the 100 breaststroke in 1:04.19, then later on in winning the 200 breaststroke in 2:20.86.
Lisa Nathanson finished first in the 50 freestyle, and then won the 100 freestyle race in 51.59 seconds.

Stephanie Rovig kicked off the Tigers' individual wins, finishing first in the 1000 freestyle. Kim Jasmer won the 500 freestyle.

In the diving competition, Jordan Morcom and Tien Tran dueled for the top spots, with Morcom getting the best of Tran in the 1-meter competition with 278.55 points, while Tran finished first in the 3-meter competition.

The Missouri men and women’s swimming and diving teams return to action next week in the Shamrock Invite at Notre Dame.
