KU swim team falls to Arkansas at home


Despite two wins from freshman Alison Lusk and senior Iuliia Kuzhil, Kansas University’s swimming and diving team lost to No. 18 Arkansas, 170-130, Thursday at Robinson Natatorium.

The Jayhawks fell to 5-5 in dual competition, while the Razorbacks moved to 7-2.

Lusk, a freshman from Chattanooga, Tenn., won both the 100-yard breaststroke (1:05.13) and the 200-yard breaststroke (2:19.27).

Kuzhil, a senior from Cherkasy, Ukraine, won the 100-yard backstroke (55.78) and the 200-yard backstroke (2:00.50).

“We were pleased with how we did,” Kansas coach Clark Campbell said. “We are kind of all over the map with training camp and coming off of last week. We had some really good things and some not-so-good things, but that’s just how it gets during training camp. It’s always good to have a Top-20 team like Arkansas come in here, and I think we competed well. Now, we’ve got to just be done with today and get ready for Nebraska on Saturday.”
