PULLMAN, Wash.-- The Washington State University women's swim team heads to Corvallis for a pair of dual meets against the Oregon State University Friday and Saturday January 26-27 beginning at 7 p.m. and 11 a.m. respectively.
"Last week we were looking to race tactically, this week we're just looking to swim fast," WSU head coach Rocco Aceto said.
The Cougars have an all-time record of 22-10 against Oregon State, with the Beavers downing the Cougars 140-121 last season.
WSU has a 7-3 record this season after dropping a pair of dual meets to the University of Nevada last week.
"The altitude in Reno definitely affected our attitude,"Aceto said about the team's performance against the Wolf Pack.
WSU will serve as the host school for the Pacific-10 Conference Women's Swimming Championships February 22-24. The meet will be held at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatics Center in Federal Way. Aceto said the team will be resting up and focusing its training following the Oregon State meet to prepare for the Championships.
Cougar swimmers continue their assault on the school's record books. This season, WSU swimmers have established 27 marks on the school's all-time top 10 lists. Leading the way is freshman Andree-Anne LeRoy who broke the school record in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2 minutes 5.06 seconds at the Patriot Invitational in Fairfax, Va. LeRoy also holds second place in the 200 backstroke, and freshman Taryn Ternent holds second in the 50 and 100 freestyle, and third in the 100 backstroke.
