Swimming Downs Idaho in First Meeting Between the Two Schools
Oct. 5, 2007
The UCLA swim team opened up the season with a bang as they defeated the Idaho Vandals 171-70 on Friday afternoon. The meet marked the first ever matchup between the two schools as one of UCLA's best male swimmers returned to campus. Tom Jager, who swam for the men's team from 1982-1986, is in his third year at the helm of the Vandal program and was honored during the meet. Former men's coach Ron Ballatore was also honored during the event.
The meet consisted of 13 events as senior Nicolette Teo led the way with three event wins in the 100/200 breaststroke and 100 freestyle. Also notching wins were sophomore Isabell Fischer (100 back), Kirsten Byers (100 fly), Ellen Brooks (800 free), Anna Poteete (50 free), Shannon Hackett (200 fly) and Madeleine Stanton (200 back).
Next Saturday, the Bruins will head to Santa Barbara for a three-way meet with the Gauchos and Oregon State.
