SAN JOSE, Calif. - Cougars Erin Eldridge, Kelley Miedema and Jill Olson carried the WSU women's swimming team to a close finish against San Jose State despite a depleted Cougar roster Saturday at Gunderson High School.

The first place wins by the trio were not enough as San Jose State rolled to a 138-112 win against WSU, completing a weekend sweep which started with a 122-70 win Friday at the San Jose State Aquatic Center.

Eldridge, a senior from Kirkland, Wash., won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1 minute, 14.97 seconds and the 200-yard breaststroke with a time of 2:43.80.

Miedema, a senior backstroke specialist, won the 100 in a time of 1:08.59 and the 200 in a time of 2:31.30. The native of Cape Town, South Africa, also finished second by just a mere two-tenths of a second in the 50 freestyle with a 28.70.

Olson, a freshman from Seattle, finished first in the 800 freestyle (9:42.87) and in the 400 freestyle (4:43.29).

The Cougars host Minnesota and Florida State in a double dual meet Saturday, October 23 at 11 a.m.
