The TCU swim team set or tied five school records during the three days at the Art Adamson Invitational swim meet hosted by Texas A&M in College Station.

Lyndsie Gibson accounted for three of the records in two events — the 100-yard backstroke and the 200 backstroke twice.

Gibson, a sophomore from Southlake who transfered from Arkansas, turned in time of 54.92 seconds in the 100 on Friday, breaking the mark of 55.37 set by Ashley Alspaugh this year. Gibson also broke her own school record in the 200 in 1:58.76 that she had set earlier in the meet.

On the men’s side, Cooper Robinson set a school record in the 200 backstroke on Saturday in 1:42.50, breaking his own mark of 1:43.25 set last year.

Robinson joined Ford Story, Adam Szilagyi and Josh Mangus on Friday to win a gold medal and tie a school record in the 200 medley relay in 1:28.17, equaling the mark set last year by Laszlo Gyurko, Edgar Crespo, Sebastian Azarias and Devin Price.

TCU volleyball

Stephanie Holland and Yvonne Igodan each posted 13 kills, but TCU couldn‘t hold off No. 24 Iowa State, which took a 3-2 decision 23-25, 16-25, 25-22, 27-25, 12-15 at the University Recreation Center.

For the Frogs (15-14, 3-11), it was their fifth five-set match in Big 12 play. The Cyclones (18-7, 11-3) had swept TCU in the three previous Big 12 meetings between the teams.

UTA volleyball

The UT Arlington volleyball team fell to Texas State 3-0 in the Sun Belt Conference championship match in Troy, Ala. The Mavericks finished the season 19-15, and 10-8 in the SBC after the 27-25, 25-19, 25-22 loss.

Senior middle blocker Charmaine Whitmore and junior outside hitter Taylor Gross were named to the Sun Belt Conference All-Tournament team.

NCAA cross country

The Colorado men and Providence women won NCAA cross-country titles in Terre Haute, Ind.

This was Colorado’s fourth men’s title, all since 2001 under coach Mark Wetmore. The No. 3-ranked Buffaloes had 149 points to hold off No. 2 Northern Arizona (169). Oregon freshman Edward Cheserek fought through a wind chill in the teens to catch defending champion Kennedy Kithuka of Texas Tech.

The top-ranked Providence women took the NCAA title in the 6,000-meter race. The Friars had 141 points and No. 2 Arizona had 197. Abbey D'Agostino of Dartmouth won her fifth NCAA title in distance running but first in cross country.
