LOS ANGELES – Seniors Erin Eldridge and Kelley Miedema claimed three individual events for the Washington State women’s swimming team as 14th-ranked UCLA won 168-90 in a dual meet at Men’s Gym Pool Saturday.

Eldridge (Kirkland, Wash.) won the 100-meter breaststroke in a time of 1 minute, 11.55 seconds to mark another NCAA consideration time in the event. An NCAA All-American breaststroker, Eldridge also victored in the 200-meter breaststroke with a 2:35.57.

Miedema, a native of Cape Town, South Africa, crossed the finish line with a 2:21.95 in the 200-meter backstroke event.

WSU would later end the day with a strong one-two performance in the 200-meter freestyle relay. The team of Rebecca Cohen (Portland), Gretchen Chambers (Adelaide, Australia), Sara Schmied (Woodinville, Wash.) and Rachelle Carano (Reno, Nev.) turned in a first place time of 1:53.67. Teammates Eli Schmied (Woodinville, Wash.), Melissa Hubley (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada), Jill Olson (Seattle) and Suzie Muirhead (Mukilteo, Wash.) finished right behind with a 1:59.12.

The UCLA-WSU contest was held in a short-course meter pool and the Bruins are now 2-0 all-time versus the Cougars.

WSU next hosts the University of Nevada on Saturday, Jan. 29 at Gibb Pool. This will be one-of-three home meets remaining on the Cougar schedule.
