The University of Miami swimming team improved to 4-1 this season after its 139-103 win this past weekend over the University of Houston. The win is the eighth in the last nine contests for the swim team. Sophomore Christine Anderson set a new UM record in the 1650-yard freestyle, finishing in 17:09.91. The diving team claimed the top three spots on the 1-meter springboard. The Canes will head to the Georgia Tech Invitational on Nov. 19.

Junior Santiago Nieto came away with three straight singles wins at the Texas Invitational before taking a loss in the semifinals. He started off strong against Oklahoma’s John Warden, but ultimately fell (6-3, 6-2, 6-1). In doubles, Nieto and senior Christian Blocker lost for the first time in their last four matches. The Hurricanes end the fall portion of their schedule in Sarasota from Friday-Sunday.
