COLUMBIA - The Missouri women's swimming team won all 16 races on the day to defeat the University of Nebraska 203-93 in the last collegiate event for the Tigers until the Big 12 Swimming and Diving Championships later this month in College Station, Texas.
“Obviously, our number one goal is always to win the meet, but I really wanted today to be about our seniors and the things they’ve accomplished in their career here at Mizzou.” Tiger coach Brian Hoffer said. “The team did a great job today, and overall I thought today was successful all around.”

The Tigers will return to the pool next weekend to face some of the world’s best competition in the Mizzou Grand Prix beginning Friday at the Mizzou Aquatics Center. The meet will feature Michael Phelps, who won a record eight gold medals during the Beijing Olympics.
