Scott Schultz Won Two Events To Lead The Gators To A Win At TCU

With half of its team preparing for the Dallas Morning News Classic later on in the evening, senior Scott Schultz (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) and junior Zach Wilcox (Yarrow Point, Wash.) led the No. 5 Florida menís swimming and diving team to a 129.5-113.5 victory against TCU Saturday at the University Rec Center.

The Gators (7-1) won eight of the 11 individual events and eight of 13 overall, highlighted by Schultz and Wilcox, who each won two apiece against the Horned Frogs (8-1). Wilcox also set a career high on the three-meter with a zone qualifying score of 379.50.

After dropping the 200-yard medley relay to open the meet, Florida won the first three individual events. The Gators went 1-2-3 in the 1,000-yard freestyle with sophomore Michael Berger (Frankfurt, Germany) taking first with a time of 9:29.89, junior Scott Kaufmann (Sparks, Nev.) second with a mark of 9:31.11 and junior Steve Friedlander (Coral Springs, Fla.) third with a time of 9:34.69.
