Diving coach Matt Scoggin let out a triumphant yell as he raised the Big 12 trophy high into the air. On swimming and diving head coach Eddie Reese’s face was a look of satisfaction and relief. It was a day of triumph for the Texas men’s swimming and diving team as they solidified their spot as the best team in Big 12 men’s swimming and diving for yet another season — the 41st straight season, to be exact.
