Swim Teams Open With Intrasquad Meet
Oct. 12, 2000
LOS ANGELES - The USC men's and women's swimming and diving teams will kick off the 2000-2001 season with an intrasquad meet on Friday (Oct. 13) at 3 p.m. at McDonald's Swim Stadium.
The event is essentially a dual-meet scrimmage with combined men's and women's teams competing together on 'Cardinal' and 'Gold' squads. Admission is free.
Both units are loaded with returning All-Americans. The men, who finished sixth at the 2000 NCAA Championships, return eight All-Americans, including senior co-captain Gabe Woodward, sophomore Olympic silver medalist Erik Vendt, senior backstroker Leonardo Costa and junior Mark Warkentin. Senior Nick Smith is the other co-captain with Woodward.
The women's team, which took seventh at last year's NCAAs, return six All-Americans, including senior co-captain Corrie Murphy, three-time All-American Kristin MacGregor and two-time All-American diver Kellie Brennan. Senior Karen Jacobs is the other co-captain with Murphy.
USC is next in action Oct. 20-21 when it hosts the USC Invitational at McDonald's Swim Stadium.
