No. 25 Women's Swimming Hosts No. 10 Texas A&M
Oct. 27, 2005
SEATTLE- The 25th ranked Washington women's swimming team plays host to No. 10 Texas A&M on Saturday at Husky Pool. The start time has been pushed back two hours to 3 pm to accommodate Texas A&M who swims at Oregon State Friday evening.
Washington is no stranger to top-10 competition as it comes off a sixth place finish at the SMU Classic last week where it faced four ranked teams, including top-ranked Florida, No. 6 UCLA, No. 9 SMU and No. 12 Wisconsin.
Texas A&M will be a formidable opponent this weekend as the Aggies tied for 14th at the 2005 NCAA Championships. The team is coming off a 183.5-116.6 win over No. 20 Missouri and a second place finish at the Big 12 relays.
Washington has a 2-0 dual meet record with wins over British Columbia and Pacific. Last week, the Huskies posted 10 season-best times out of 20 events at the SMU Classic. Meet highlights included freshman Kim Jasmer's time of 4:55.43 in the 500 freestyle and senior Liya Liu's time of 51.62 in the 100 freestyle. Both times were fast enough to rank eighth on the Washington all-time list.
