The Cougars have some good swimmers on their team. They cannot draw as well as Texas, Texas A&M or SMU but they do have some quality.

I look for big things from them in the future.

Thanks for posting on the Lady Cougars swimming team. They don't get as much coverage as they deserve.

Yes, they have some talent and are a wonderful group of young ladies. It is a pleasure to cover them.

I might be bias, but having a daughter that swims for them, along with being the Official Announcer for the Lady Cougar Swimming Team, makes it a joy to give them coverage.

Look for more posts on them in the future, both on this site and our main sports website
