The women's swimming and diving team fell to Minnesota on Nov. 5 at the University Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, 180-114.

The meet kicked off with the women's 200-medley relay. Junior captain Daniela Cubelic stepped in for injured junior captain Danielle Carty at backstroke, and freshman Elise Borja picked up the freestyle portion. The Iowa relay team took second with a time of 1:45.43.

Standout performances by the Hawkeyes included senior captain Katarina Tour's first-place finish in the 100 breaststroke, posting a time of 1:04.19. Cubelic won in the 200 backstroke in just 2:04.33, and Borja had a career-best time in the 50 freestyle (24.24).

The Hawkeyes' diving tandem won both events. Junior Veronica Rydze took first in the 1 meter with a score of 267.23, and senior Deidre Freeman won the 3 meter, finishing with a score of 314.25.

Though the meet concluded with the Hawkeyes far behind the Gophers, Iowa was pleased with its performance against one of the Big Ten leaders.

"We knew it was going to be tough, and we had to race hard in order to win some events." Cubelic said. "That's exactly what we did, and I think we accomplished our goals. We made some progress as a team, and we are really happy with our performance."
