The Longhorns will be united as a team this Friday as they travel to Ann Arbor for an annual dual meet with Indiana and Michigan. The three schools have met five years in a row for this dual meet, with the Longhorns emerging victorious over the Hoosiers and Wolverines the past three meetings.
After opening the season with a team victory at the SMU Classic last weekend, the Longhorns are primed to continue this success in the first real meet of the year.
Texas will be led by senior captain Karlee Bispo, who was named Big 12 Swimmer of the Week after carrying the load for the team in the SMU Classic.
“We have a pretty young team this year,” Bispo said. “But we are confident that we can swim well and improve from the past year as a team.”
While Indiana and Michigan aren’t nearly as decorated as Texas, the dual meet should prove a formidable test and gauge the team’s true ability and potential in the 2011-2012 season.
