Three Cougs Notch Wins But WSU Falls at UCLA
LOS ANGELES (October 30, 2021) – Washington State Women's Swimming recorded three individual wins but dropped a 169-91 decision at UCLA Saturday afternoon.
"We competed well against a very good USC team yesterday but we weren't as sharp as we would have liked today," head coach Matt Leach said. "We had some nice swims from Angela (Di Palo), Chloe (Larson) and Taylor (McCoy) who each won their events. We will get back home to Pullman and continue to work and get ready for our home meet against Grand Canyon. Go Cougs!"
Freshman Angela Di Palo continued her impressive start to her Cougar career, notching her fourth win of the season and third against a Pac-12 Conference opponent after claiming the 200 free with a season-high time. Larson notched a win in the 50 free as the defending Pac-12 Conference champion in the 50 free has won all four races against conference opponents.
Di Palo later finished second in the 100 free, McCoy was second in the 200 back, Mackenzie Duarte was third in the 200 breast and Noelle Harvey was second in the 500 free. Freshman Ilaria Moro finished second in the 200 fly and McCoy later won the 400 IM, her team-leading seventh win of the season.
The Cougars return home to host Grand Canyon, Nov. 12 at Noon.
