AUSTIN, Texas --- The No. 4-ranked Georgia women's swimming and diving team earned an impressive road win on Saturday, dispatching No. 8 Texas at the Jamail Texas Swimming Center.

"I thought our teams kept a positive attitude, raced hard and did what every coach would hope a team would do this late in the season," said Harvey Humphries, Georgia's Senior Associate Head Coach. "We have so much respect for the Texas program, and we feel like they're the kind of teams you measure your teams against. Overall, it was a great meet. Both teams really turned in some great performances."
Georgia's teams will be idle until Jan. 25 when they entertain Tennessee.
