This weekend the men’s (1-0, 1-0 Pac-12) and women’s (1-0, 1-0) swim teams are gearing up for away meets. This Friday, the women will face the Washington State Cougars (1-0) in Pullman, Washington. The following day, the men will be swimming at an invitational meet in Stockton, California with the University of the Pacific.
Following a strong showing against Utah both the men’s and women’s team are coming into their meets with a 1-0 record.
The women’s team will be facing a Cougars swim team with a new coach. This July, the Cougars welcomed Matt Leach to lead the women’s swimming and diving team at Washington State. The Cougars record for this season stands at 1-0 as well.
The Cardinal’s newly minted freshman members performed extremely well and are well situated to do the same at the upcoming meet against Washington State. The Cardinal are looking increasingly well set up to have another incredible year leading to another championship.
The men’s team’s performance at the previous meet against Utah showed how deep the men’s swim team really is. From the electric debuts by freshman swimmers like Jack Levant to impressive swims by seasoned seniors like Brad Zdroik, the men’s team is as strong as ever. If their smashing victory against Utah is any indication of results to occur at the upcoming invitational meet at University of the Pacific, then we are in for a meet filled with Cardinal victories.
The women will jump off the blocks at 2 p.m. PST on Friday and the men at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
