Swimmers & Divers Split For Competitions This Week

Dec. 2, 2009

The UCLA swimmers and divers will both be in action this weekend as the swimmers head to Federal Way, WA for the USA Short Course National Championships and the divers head to Austin, TX for the Texas Invitational.

All four divers will travel to Austin as junior Karina Silva leads the way with two Zone meet qualifiers. Also competing are junior Laura Winn and freshmen Michelle Vale and Maggy Boyd. The meet features Texas, Arizona, Auburn, Wisconsin, North Texas and Wyoming; UCLA, California, Hawaii, SMU, New Mexico and TCU will compete in diving only.

The Texas Invite runs Thursday through Saturday. Three-meter will be held on Thursday with prelims beginning at 12:45 pm and finals starting at 4:15 pm. On Friday, 1M prelims will begin at 10:30 am, while finals follow at 3:15 pm. There will be no prelims for the tower event and that competition gets underway at 10:30 am on Saturday. All start times are PST.

Heading to Federal Way are seniors Kirsten Byers and Isabell Fischer, juniors Brittany Beauchan, Lauren Hall and Dani Milligan, sophomores Bianca Casciari and Yasi Jahanshahi, and freshmen Emily Andelson, Lindsey Marchand and Karoline Sanderud.

The meet features many collegiate and professional athletes, including many Olympians (Renecca Soni, Margaret Hoelzer, Eric Shanteau, Dana Vollmer, Katie Hoff and Kosuke Kitajima). Prelims begin at 9:00 am with finals commencing at 5:00 pm. Footage from the meet will air nationally on NBC on Saturday, December 12 from 2 - 3 p.m. ET. All three days of prelims and finals will also be available for viewing on-demand at SwimNetwork.com>

These two meets mark the end of the 2009 portion of the swimming and diving schedule. The Bruins will return to competition January 8th when they compete for the first time at home in the new Spieker Aquatics Center. They will face off against Kansas and Fresno State.
