Swimming and Diving Preview

Teams: UC Davis vs. Seattle

Where: Schaal Aquatics Center

When: Saturday at 11 a.m.

Who to watch: Freshman Bridget Bugbee took first this past weekend in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:56.40.

The San Ramon, Calif. native specializes in long distance freestyle events but holds the third fastest 100 free time on the team.

“Bugbee practices intensely,” said coach Barbara John. “She trains extremely hard and has a lot of energy. Her willingness to compete in all events freestyle is sure to be an asset.”

Did you know? Two weeks ago, the UC Davis women fell to Nevada by a score of 161-139 in a meet that John claimed the Aggies out swam their opponents. Bugbee, Foley and Herman each won two of their individual events.

In diving, Nevada captured first, second and third place to gain the overall advantage in points over UC Davis.

Preview: UC Davis picked-up their first dual meet win of the season last weekend against UC Santa Cruz.

On Saturday, the Aggies welcome Seattle to Schaal Aquactics Center.

Women’s swimming picked up a win by a score of 157-131 over the Banana Slugs.

In their first meet of the season, the Aggie men also claimed a victory by a margin of 146-134.

The Aggies started off the meet with a win in the women’s and men’s 200 medley relays. The women’s ‘A’ squad – comprised of Linda Hermann, Morgan Lee, Jenah Dawson and Kayleigh Foley – finished with a time of 1:52.90.

The men’s ‘A’ team of Daniel Donnelly, Keegan Groot, Adam Yen and Russ Underwood clocked in with a time of 1:35.52.

While UC Davis is focused on this weekend’s competition against Seattle, John says the real challenge will come against Denver two weeks from now.
