Swim & Dive Host Final Home Meet on Saturday
Jan. 5, 2007
The No. 14 UCLA swim and dive team will hold their final home meet of the season on Saturday as they host the UC San Diego Tritons at 11:00 am. Diving will take place at the Sunset Recreation Center, while swim events will be held at the Men's Gym Pool (also known as Student Activities Center).
This will be the final home meet for 10 seniors - divers Amanda Blong and Sara Clark; and swimmers Katie Arnold, Jeana Fuccillo, Jane Imagane, Courtney Iversen, Luisa Los-Santos, Isabel Miesner, Katie Nelson and Amy Thurman.
The meet will not be the typical run-of-the-mill type of competition as the teams will compete mainly in relays. Events slated to be contested are the 200 Medley Relay, 500 Breast Relay, 500 Fly Relay, 500 Back Relay, 400 Free Relay, 600 IM Relay 600 Free Relay and some variation of a 25 Free Relay. The sole individual event will be the 500 Freestyle.
It is the first competition of 2007 for the Bruins as UCLA prepares for the meat of their schedule - dual meets with Cal, Stanford and USC, as well as the Pac-10 and NCAA Championships.
