Bruins Cruise To Easy Victory Over UCSB
Oct. 27, 2000
The UCLA women's swim team opened the 2000-01 season with a relatively easy 174-79 victory over UC Santa Barbara this afternoon at the Men's Gym Pool.
The Bruins claimed victories in all the individual and relay events. Freshman Sara Platzer had a superb coming out party this afternoon. Platzer, a native of Lakewood, Washington claimed two event titles and also established a meet record in the 100 free, eclipsing the previous record of 51.05 set by Keiko Price in 1998. She also swam the first leg of the 200 free relay that broke the meet record, also set in 1998. Other members of the relay squad included Leanne Cadag, Ashley Grissom and Erica Shugart. Junior Jen Noddle also won two individual events.
Platzer finished first in the 200 free (1:50.05-hand time) and the 100 free (50.82), while Noddle captured the 100 breast (1:05.56) and the 200 individual medley (2:08.45). Brooke Winkler, swimming in her first collegiate meet, won the 200 breast (2:22.64). Other notable performances included sophomores Leanne Cadag and Erica Shugart winning the 100 back (57.84) and the 50 free (24:04), respectively. Senior Beth Goodwin was impressive as well after claiming the 100 fly (55.65). UC Santa Barbara did not field a diving squad.
UCLA's women's swimming and diving team returns to action on Saturday, November 4, when they host the University of San Diego. The meet is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am at the Men's Gym Pool.
