FORT WORTH, Texas (SMU) – The SMU men's swimming and diving team won 14 of 16 events to defeat TCU, 184-114, on the road Wednesday evening. With the victory, the Mustangs open the season 1-0 in dual action, while improving to 28-3-1 all-time against the Horned Frogs.

Eight different Mustangs won their respective events, with Jonathan Gomez leading the way with three wins. Classmate Bryce Klein swept diving with wins on the 1- and 3-meter boards, while Nick Badsky also picked up a pair of wins.

Klein posted NCAA Zone qualifying scores on both boards, winning the 1 meter with 312.15 points and the 3 meter with 365.99. Both scores were well ahead of his competitors from TCU.
