Jan. 18, 2018

SAN DIEGO  – The San Diego State swimming and diving team wraps up its 2017-18 regular-season schedule on Friday, hosting San Diego for a dual meet at the Aztec Aquaplex beginning at 12:00 p.m. Earlier this season, the Aztecs defeated the Toreros in the teams’ annual season-opening pentathlon meet, 33-24. Before the start of the meet, the Aztecs will hold a Senior Day ceremony for the team’s seven seniors who will conclude their collegiate careers at the end of the season.

The SDSU swimmers were most recently in action on Jan. 8, where the Aztecs topped New Mexico (158-142) and Fresno State (179-121), but fell to Colorado State (153-147) in an all-Mountain West quad meet. The SDSU divers were in action in Los Angeles last weekend for the Bruin Invite at UCLA, where Alexandra Caplan reached the finals in both the 1-meter and 3-meter competitions, while teammate Nicole Dutton reached the finals on the platform last Sunday.

The Aztecs currently rank first in the Mountain West in College Swimming’s college championship team rankings with 712.90 points. The Aztecs are also 45th in the nation in the same rankings. 

Last time out, the Aztecs recorded a pair of first-place times in its quad meet against New Mexico, Fresno State and Colorado State. McKenna Meyer recorded a time of 4:24.94 in the 400 IM, and two events later, Meyer was a part of SDSU’s first-place 400 free relay team alongside Frida Berggren, Alma Thormalm and Klara Thormalm, who collectively posted a time of 3:28.52.

SDSU enters tomorrow’s contest with a dual meet of 10-1, while the Toreros are 2-7 on the year and were most recently defeated by Fresno State, 167-104.

Following tomorrow’s dual meet, the Aztecs will have a 26-day layoff from competition before seeking its fourth conference championship in the last eight years at the Mountain West Conference Championships in San Antonio, Texas, from Feb. 14 – 16. SDSU has recorded a top-three finish in the conference championship in each of the last eight years.
