Big XII Wrap-Up

Event results are here.

Pic above is Longhorn senior Neil Caskey after winning the 200 fly (1:45.66).

Officials felt that Caskey's lead at the 150 (nearly two seconds) was unfair to other competitors, so he was required to tow an anvil for the remainder of the race.

Absolutely one of the gutsiest swims I've ever seen - way to get it to the wall, Neil!

that meet where they were both going for the $100 bonus for breaking a minute? in the 100 scy free? and neither quite got it? yeah, they sure have come a long way. hanging in there and working day after day, month after month - with no guarantees - is what makes our sport the toughest and best. talk about prepping for life...
