Big West Top Times
In the final weekend of competition leading up to the 2008 Big West Swimming & Diving Championship, all six schools hit the pool for last minute preparation.
The Cal Poly Mustangs swimming and diving team heads to Santa Cruz, Calif., to face the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs and the University of Nevada Wolf Pack in a tri-meet Saturday, Feb. 2. The women's team is coming off a victory over the Pepperdine Waves last week, while the men's program enters the meet fresh after having last week off.
Competing in their fourth straight week of dual meets are the UC Davis Aggies, who face Big West foes UC Santa Barbara and UC Irvine. The Aggies host the Gauchos at Schaal Aquatics Center on Friday, Feb. at 1:00 p.m. before traveling to UC Irvine on Saturday for a dual meet with the Anteaters at 12:30 p.m.
Along with UC Davis, the UC Irvine Anteaters host Cal State Northridge on Friday afternoon in their first pair of home dual meets. Throughout the season, UC Irvine hosted a handful of multi-team events, but haven't had the opportunity to host a dual meet until the final weekend of competition. On the road, the men's team is 2-1 in dual action, while the women own a 2-2 mark. For the Matadors, both programs are looking for their first dual win of the 2007-08 season.
Coming off a win over UNLV, UC Santa Barbara hits the road for matchups with UC Davis and Pacific. The Gauchos take on UC Davis Friday and then visit Stockton, Calif., to face the Tigers. The Gauchos men's team has won six straight dual meets, while the women's squad claimed five of the last six outings. The Tigers haven't been as lucky, with the men's team posting a 1-3 record and women's team holding a 3-2 mark.
