The newly remodeled Anderson Aquatics Center on the campus of Cal Poly will host its first multi-team team as the Mustangs host the Cal Poly Invitational Friday and Saturday.
The invitational will feature Cal Poly, league rival Cal State Northridge, Cal Lutheran and Pepperdine over the two-day event. The Waves will only be competing on the women’s side of the invitational.
The Northern California schools will continue their dual heavy schedule this weekend as well. Friday sees UC Davis take on Denver at home, while Pacific takes on the Pioneers at Chris Kjeldsen Pool the following day. The Tigers will also take on Nevada the same day as the DU/UCD dual competition.
Previously in the Big West
Five schools were in action last weekend in one of the busiest slates to date on the Big West swimming docket.
Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara met at Anderson Aquatics Center in San Luis Obispo for a triple-distance meet in the only battle between conference teams. The unscored meet had the teams compete against each other in the three distances of each individual event (eg., 50 fly, 100 fly, 200 fly). The athletes would then be ranked in those events based on their combined times. The Cal Poly and UCSB women each claimed three of the "triathlon" titles, while the Gaucho men won four of the six "triathlons" on that side.
Pacific was in action twice over the weekend as the Tiger swim clubs faced off against Seattle and Cal State Bakersfield in a pair of home meets. Pacific's women topped the Redhawks by a score of 111-94, while the men's team fell to SU by 127-79 count. The next day, the Tiger women came away with a win over the Roadrunners by a 151-109 final, while the men fell to CSUB, 152-104.
Finally, UC Davis was in competition with a single meet last weekend, a dual matchup against Seattle the day after SU competed against Pacific. The Aggies won both ends of the meet against the Redhawks, posting a 144-88 win on the women's side and a 132-102 decision in the men's meet.
