On Thursday, February 22nd, the University of Wyoming family suffered a tremendous loss.

Three members of the University of Wyoming Swimming and Diving team died in a single-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 287 10 miles south of the Wyoming-Colorado border. Two other members of the men's swimming and diving team were injured in the crash.

Tragically, Charlie Clark, 19, a sophomore on the men’s team and a psychology major from Las Vegas, Nev.; Carson Muir, 18, a freshman on the women’s team and an animal and veterinary sciences major from Birmingham, Ala.; and Luke Slabber, 21, a junior on the men’s team studying construction management from Cape Town, South Africa were killed in this accident.

"We are heartsick at the news of this terrible tragedy for our university, our state, our student-athlete community, and most importantly, the families and friends of these young people," UW President Ed Seidel said in a statement. "Words are insufficient to express our sadness."

"My thoughts and prayers are with our swimming and diving student-athletes, coaches, families and friends," UW Director of Athletics Tom Burman says. "It is difficult to lose members of our University of Wyoming family, and we mourn the loss of these student-athletes."
