DALLAS (SMU) – The Mustangs won eight events, including doubles from Alex Stevens and Jenna Watson, and defeated American Athletic Conference foe Tulane, 147-111, on Senior Day at The Nat.

Prior to the event, SMU honored Katie Crown, Madison Kinsey, Taylor Ohlhauser, Sam Smith, Lauren Thompson and Kiley Vandevier for their contributions to the program.

Stevens continued her freestyle dominance for the Mustangs, leading an SMU sweep of the 50- and 100- yard freestyles. Stevens won the 50 in 23.72, and finished the 100 in 51.16. Johanna Gudmundsdottir finished second in both events clocking in at 23.94 and 52.15, while Indra Vandenbussche was third at 24.25 and 52.84.

Watson's first win came in the 200-yard freestyle, where she also led a sweep for the Mustangs, pacing the field in 1:53.00. Olivia Grossklaus (1:53.69) was second and Janelle Gursoy third (1:53.73). Grossklaus was also runner-up in the 500.

The freshman also won the 400-yard individual medley by nearly three seconds, covering the distance in 4:25.47, and was second in the 200-yard breaststroke.

SMU swept butterfly events with a win in the 100 distance from Valentina Becerra (56.73) and the 200 from Grossklaus (2:00.08). Becerra was third in the 200, while Maxine Parkinson was the runner-up in the 100.

The opening 400-yard medley relay picked up first-place points for the Mustangs as Watson, Maddy Lewis, Becerra and Stevens clocked in at 3:48.25 for the win, and Gudmundsdottir, Stevens, Smith and Vandenbussche won the 200-yard freestyle relay in 1:34.19 to close the event.

Mustang divers faced North Texas in exhibition action at the event, sweeping both boards. Senior divers led the way for SMU, with Ohlhauser and Crown posting career days. Ohlhauser registered a personal-best 325.43 to lead all divers on 3 meter, with Crown coming in with her career mark of 312.23 for second.

On 1 meter, Ohlhauser's new personal best of 305.48 led the field, with the Mustangs rounding out the top three.
