CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State women's swim team defeated Washington State University Friday, 100-78. The victory gives the Beavers an overall record of 11-2 and a 1-2 Pac-10 record on the season. With the loss, the Cougars fall to 3-3 (0-2 in the Pac-10) in dual meets.

Oregon State got off to a quick start, winning the first three events. OSU led 42-12 after the third event.
