Cougars host Apple Cup of Swimming
Nov. 15, 2000
Washington State University hosts the University of Washington for the Apple Cup of women's swimming Thursday, November 16, beginning 7 p.m. at Gibb Pool in Pullman.
The Cougars have a 5-1 record this season, but are 0-21-1 all-time against the Huskies.
'This is a great intrastate rivalry, but up to this point we haven't proved to be a rival,' WSU coach Rocco Aceto said. 'We are honored to compete with a team that has such a prolific winning streak.'
WSU is coming off an impressive 185-76 rout over San Jose State November 4 in Pullman.
'Our team has learned how to train aggressively,' Aceto said. 'In the last meet, we began to race aggressively.'
This week's meet will be in an 11-event format, the same format used in the meet against South Carolina, a 119-86 Cougar win October 21. A 14-event format was used in the Cougars' most recent meet against San Jose State.
Freshmen swimmers have recorded 15 WSU All-Time Top 10 performances in three meets this season. The following freshmen currently hold positions in school top 10 lists: Taryn Ternent third in the 100 back and 100 free, and fifth in the 50 free.
