Hogs Split against Alligators and Sharks

GAINESVILLE, Florida – The Arkansas swim and dive team split the day, with a win over Nova Southeastern and a loss to the Florida Gators.

Against the Gators, the Hogs posted a team score of 79 to Florida’s 219 and 222 to the Sharks’ 65. Arkansas is now 2-1 this season.

“I think the team did a great job today against a Florida team that will probably be one of the top 5 teams in the NCAA all year. We competed well on the road and I think we showed positive progression from where we were at the competition last week,” said head coach Neil Harper. “The swimmers and divers are working hard right now and we are showing improvement and a dedication to working towards our goals for the rest of this fall!”
