Bruins Host University of San Diego On Saturday

The UCLA women's swimming and diving team returns to action this Saturday, November 4, when they play host to the University of San Diego. The meet is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am at the Men's Gym Pool. The diving portion of the meet is also scheduled to begin at 11:00 am at the Park Pool.

Last season, UCLA traveled to San Diego to compete in a double dual meet against UC San Diego and the Universtiy of San Diego, with the Bruins defeating the Toreros by a margin of 199-95. UCLA leads the all-time series, 3-0. The Toreros, the Pacific Collegiate Conference Champions a year ago, finished last season with a .444 mark (4-5) in dual meet competition.

UCLA Cruises To Victory Over The Gauchos

The UCLA women's swim team opened the 2000-01 season with a relatively easy 174-79 victory over UC Santa Barbara last Friday at the Men's Gym Pool. The Bruins claimed victories in all the individual and relay events. Freshman Sara Platzer had a superb coming-out party last Friday. Platzer, a native of Lakewood, Wash. claimed two event titles and also established a meet record in the 100 free, eclipsing the previous record of 51.05 set by Keiko Price in 1998. She also swam the first leg of the 200 free relay that broke the meet record, also previously set in 1998. Other members of the relay squad included Leanne Cadag, Ashley Grissom and Erica Shugart. Junior Jen Noddle also won two individual events.

Platzer finished first in the 200 free (1:50.05-hand time) and the 100 free (50.82), while Noddle captured the 100 breast (1:05.56) and the 200 individual medley (2:08.45). Brooke Winkler, swimming in her first collegiate meet, won the 200 breast (2:22.64). Other notable performances included sophomores Leanne Cadag and Erica Shugart winning the 100 back (57.84) and the 50 free (24:04), respectively. Senior Beth Goodwin was impressive as well, claiming the 100 fly (55.65). UC Santa Barbara did not field a diving squad.

Several Bruins Impressive at Intra-squad Meet

Men's Gym Pool was the site of the first competition of the 2000-01 Bruin swimming team, as several Bruins recorded impressive results in the non-scoring intra-squad scrimmage on Friday, September 29th.

Junior Jennifer Noddle claimed two events titles, while freshman newcomers Sarah Platzer and Naoko Watanabe had impressive debuts as well. Scheduled events included the 100 Freestyle, 500 freestyle 200 Backstroke, 100 Breaststroke, 200 Butterfly, and 200 IM. Event winners included sophomore Erin Zehntner in the 500 free (5:05.02), Sara Platzer in the 100 Free (52.53), Jen Noddle in the 200 breast (2:22.11) and 200 IM (2:07.88), Naoko Watanabe in the 200 Back (2:06.30) and senior Katie Younglove in the 200 Fly (2:07.40).
