NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Texas A&M proved to be too much for the Vanderbilt swim team, as the Aggies defeated the Commodores, 154.5-98.5 at Centennial Sportsplex, Saturday afternoon. A&M, the 2013 SEC runners-up, won all 14 events on the afternoon. Vandy picked up 10 top-three finishes, with Chrissy Oberg picking up the highest finish for the 'Dores in the 200 back.
Oberg took second in the 200-yard backstroke finishing with a time of 2:05.20. She was also able to take third in the 100 back with a time of 58.12.
Faulkner was able to take third in both the 200-yard breaststroke and 200-yard IM. In the breaststroke the junior touched the wall with a time of 2:21.17, in the IM she finished at 2:09.89.
One of the most exciting races of the day came earlier on in the 1000-yard freestyle. Freshman Kathryn Babbin was in a tight race with A&M's Cayla Jetter for second-place. Despite Babbin's 30.59 split on the last 50, she finished 1/100th off Jetter, coming in at 10:36.47.
Vanderbilt will be back in the pool again on November 2, when it travels south to New Orleans to take on Tulane.
