AUSTIN, Texas — From the time the meet began until the final swimmers touched the wall, the No. 10 Texas women’s swimming and diving team’s hard work throughout this season paid off, as the Longhorns ran away with the Big 12 title in Morgantown, W.Va. UT won its eighth consecutive conference title with 1,012 points, beating runner-up Kansas by 181 points and third-place TCU by 478.

“We have pretty high expectations, and it is where we expected it to be,” head coach Carol Capitani said after the meet’s first day. “There’s always your ups and your downs, and [right now] I’m looking for some resiliency.”
