The UCLA swimming and diving team will return to competition this week as they open up the 2012 portion of their season. Up first is a swimming dual with Boise State on Wednesday at 1:00 pm (Spieker Aquatics Center). The divers will then host Boise State and Nebraska on Saturday at 10:00 am (Spieker Aquatics Center), while the swimmers travel to La Jolla for the San Diego Relays.
The Bruins are 1-2 on the year with a win over UC Santa Barbara and losses to Arizona and Arizona State. UCLA hosted Boise State last season and defeated them 178-116.
The swimmers have tallied 27 NCAA "B" qualifying marks, while two divers, Emma Ivory-Ganja and Paulina Guzman have qualified for the NCAA Zone E Championship. After a layoff from competition in the end of December, the Bruins will be ready to get back in the pool and compete.
