Cougar Swimming Swept By Nevada
Jan. 27, 2001
RENO, Nev.-- The University of Nevada women's swim team completed a two-day sweep over Washington State University with a 114-88 victory in a dual meet Saturday. The Wolf Pack had earlier beaten the Cougars 150.5-111.5 yesterday.
'Basically we have been in a lull with our training since the Olympic Training Center trip, and the altitude in Reno definitely affected our attitude,' WSU head coach Rocco Aceto said. 'Nevada just came in off a tough loss to Pacific last weekend, and prepared dilligently against us. The bottom line is our team had a poor athletic performance this weekend.'
Nevada won seven-of-11 events, and senior Ping Luo claimed three victories for the second day in a row.The loss drops the Cougars dual-meet record to 7-3 this season.
'Taryn Ternent was the most aggressive competitor for us, she really held the team together,' Aceto said. 'Other than that, the Wolf Pack wanted a victory more than us, and we had some uncontrolled variables affect us, which in athletics is something you have to plan ahead for. We got swept, and just had a really poor swimming weekend, but we hope and believe that we can rebound well against the Oregon State Beavers next weekend.'
The Cougars compete next against Oregon State in a two-day series of dual meets Friday and Saturday February 2-3 in Corvallis
Complete results will be available shortly.
