Home Dual Meets Dot Halloween Weekend For Swim Clubs
Files associated with this release:
The upcoming Halloween weekend is a light one on the Big West swim schedule, but the teams in action will have the added benefit of competing in their home pools against single opponents.
Friday's action has just one conference team hitting the pool as Pacific's men's and women's contingents continue their busy early season schedules with dual meets against Seattle. The Tigers will also have a home meet on Saturday as Cal State Bakersfield comes calling to Chris Kjeldsen Pool.
UC Davis' swim teams will also be in action over the weekend as Seattle heads to Schaal Aquatics Center the day after competing against Pacific. The Aggie men last faced the Redhawks in January of 2008, posting a 133-117 victory up at the Connelly Center in Seattle, Wash.

Two schools were to picturesque Malibu, Calif., for the Malibu Invitational hosted by Pepperdine last weekend. Even though the meet was not a scored event, athletes from Cal Poly and Cal State Northridge came through with several excellent results.
The Mustangs' Angie Haven was a star in the pool with six victories, five of which were school-record setting results. The Cal Poly men were led by Peter Kline who wrapped up the Invitational with four wins and a second place finish. Meanwhile, the Matador women saw freshman Kimmy Rashleigh come through with a six top five finishes, while Nick Lau had two top four finishes including a second place showing in the 50 breast.
The UC Davis swim teams each picked up a victory as they competed last weekend at home against UC Santa Cruz. The Aggie men, competing in their home opener, dropped the Banana Slugs by a 146-134 margin, while the UCD women’s team picked up its first dual meet win of the season by a 157-131 count.
Finally, UC Santa Barbara's women's team welcomed a pair of Pac-10 schools in Oregon State and UCLA to Campus Pool for a tri-meet. The Gauchos were able to defeat the Beavers for the second consecutive year by a 182-80 score, but fell to the Bruins by a 165-94 final.
