Three days removed from earning the No. 5 ranking in the College Swimming Coaches Association of America poll, the North Carolina women's swimming and diving team looked to defend its ranking for the first time.
And in dual meet action at the Indiana Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatics Center on Friday, the Tar Heels did just that.
Going up against No. 10 Tennessee, No. 11 Indiana and Kentucky, the women’s team swept its competition, while the No. 12 men's team defeated the No. 9 Hoosiers, No. 11 Volunteers and the Wildcats to cap an impressive meet for UNC.
On the women's side, a Tar Heel placed first in nine out of 16 events.
Junior Hellen Moffitt continued her strong start by winning all three of her individual events — the 100-yard backstroke, the 200-yard backstroke and the 100-yard butterfly. She accomplished the same feat on Oct. 10 against Georgia.
