2012-13 Omaha Swimming and Diving – Retrospect

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Retrospects,Swimming and Diving — Jon Green @ 2:00 pm

Omaha can’t look back at this year as anything but a success. After a tough start against hard competition Omaha started the year 0-4 in duels before winning five of their last eight to finish the year at 5-7. They beat Division 1 opposition four times, Northern Iowa (twice), South Dakota State, and South Dakota. Omaha went to the Kansas Classic in November and finished 6th. They won the Grinnell Invite and came in 2nd to Northern Colorado in the Mutual of Omaha Invite.

In that Mutual of Omaha invite junior Maddie Hutt set school records in both the 100 breaststroke and 200 breaststroke breaking records set by Ashley Renshaw back in 2006 and 2003 respectively.

To end the year at the Summit League Championship the Mavericks set three school records and came in 3rd behind Oakland and IUPUI. One of those records that fell was Jessica Hessel’s 100 freestyle record, broken by freshman Natalie Renshaw.

Omaha’s future looks bright. Of the eight spots on the two relay teams that set school records, four were swam by seniors, two by juniors, one by a sophomore, and one by a freshman.

The other three relay teams all were inside the top five in school history and the 12 spots included three seniors, five juniors, one sophomore, and three freshman.

Of the top individual times at the school this year from the 14 events just two were by seniors. So returning those leading the other 12 events is huge. Four were led by juniors, four by sophomores, and four by freshman.

Omaha’s divers were a sophomore and freshman, and both showed promise this year.

It’s a good start to the Summit League for UNO and somewhere to build from into the future.
