Rowing-which competes in the Big 12 Conference-had the second-highest multi-year score among its conference opponents (991), and men's swimming & diving had the fourth-highest multi-year score among its SEC foes (990).

The overall score of 983 - covering 2014-15 through 2017-18 and released Wednesday - matched last year's record high.

Men's golf tied its highest multi-year April in program history with a 993; that high mark also was posted last year and three years ago.
