WSU Swimming Hosts San Jose State

Nov. 1, 2000

PULLMAN, Wash.-- The Washington State University women's swim team hosts San Jose State University Saturday, November 4, beginning 11 a.m. at Gibb Pool in Pullman.

The Cougars have a 6-2 all-time record against the Spartans, with both losses coming last season at meets in San Jose.

The Cougars have a 4-1 record this season, and are coming off an impressive 119-86 victory over South Carolina October 21 in Pullman. WSU coach Rocco Aceto said this win over a very talented SEC team gave his young team a great boost in confidence.

'We have a lot of talent, a lot of ambition and a bright future,' head coach Rocco Aceto said. 'Our strength is our range and depth of talent.'

The Spartans lost to Oregon State and Pacific in their most recent meet. Pablo Morales, a three-time Olympic gold medal winner, is in his third year as head coach of the team.

This week's meet will be in a 14-event format, a change from the 11-event format in the meet against South Carolina. The 14-event format adds the 100 yard backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

Freshman Taryn Ternent improved last meet by moving into fifth place position on the Cougars' all-time list in the 50 freestyle and third place in the 100 freestyle with performances against South Carolina. Another freshman, Andree-Anne LeRoy moved herself into fifth place all-time in the 200 backstroke and 200 individual medley with performances in that same meet.
