Aztec Swimming and Diving Record Two Victories
Jan. 28, 2005
LOS ANGELES - The San Diego State swimming and diving team defeated Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine at Burns Aquatic Center on the campus of Loyola Marymount. The Aztecs posted a 107-98 win over the Lions and cruised to a 144-96 victory over the Waves. The two wins improve the Aztecs' record to 5-7 on the season.
Emily Parker and Emily Schmied established season-highs in 1000-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly. Parker finished first with a time of 10:27.68, 34 seconds faster than the Kady Skora of Pepperdine, in the 1000 freestyle. Schmied's time of 58.88 in the 100 fly was just enough to edge out the Lions' Angela Samuels who finished with a time of 59.03.
In the 200-yard free relay, the team of Tamarah Binek, Adrienne Conte, Parker and Samantha Peters swam to a first-place finish with a season-best time of 1:39.27. SDSU's Katie Smith, Lindsay Hnyda, Schmied and Caitlin Friedhoff finished the 400-yard medley relay in second, but established a season-high time of 3:58.09 in the process.
A total of four season-high times were set.
With the pair of wins, the Aztecs improve to 8-0 against Loyola Marymount and 6-0 versus Pepperdine dating back to the 1999-00 season.
San Diego State's next final dual-meet of the season will be on Feb. 5 at 1 p.m., when they face Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, Ariz.
