PULLMAN, Wash.-- The Washington State University women's swim team hosts San Jose State University Saturday, November 4, beginning 11 a.m. at Gibb Pool in Pullman.
The Cougars have a 6-2 all-time record against the Spartans, with both losses coming last season at meets in San Jose.
The Cougars have a 4-1 record this season, and are coming off an impressive 119-86 victory over South Carolina October 21 in Pullman. WSU head coach Rocco Aceto said this win over a very talented SEC team gave his young team a great boost in confidence.
"We have a lot of talent, a lot of ambition and a bright future," Aceto said. "Our strength is our range and depth of talent."
San Jose State lost to Oregon State and Pacific in their most recent meet. Pablo Morales, a three-time Olympic gold medal winner, is in his third year as head coach of the Spartans.
This week's meet will be in a 14-event format, a change from the 11-event format in the meet against South Carolina. The 14-event format adds the 100 yard backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
Freshman Taryn Ternent improved last meet by moving into fifth place on the Cougars' all-time list in the 50 freestyle and third place in the 100 freestyle with performances against South Carolina. Another freshman, Andree-Anne LeRoy moved herself into fifth place all-time in the 200 backstroke and 200 individual medley with performances in that same meet.
