Aztecs Continue Three-meet Homestand on Saturday
* The Aztecs continue their longest homestand of the season when they face the 2003-04 Mountain West Conference regular season co-champion Utah Utes at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Utes are coming off of a successful showing at the Beehive Relays against BYU, while the Aztecs come into the meet having won their first dual-meet of the year.
Saturday, the Aztecs will looking to accomplish something they have not done since 2001-02 - begin the season 2-0. Oddly enough, that was the same campaign SDSU started its conference season 1-0 and finished the year with a 10-3 dual-meet record.
* In the season opener for both schools, SDSU defeated Loyola Marymount, 53-19, at Kroc Community Center on Oct. 16. During the non-conference meet, the Aztecs took first in all 10 relay and diving events. In four of the events, San Diego State swept the top two spots. Sophomore Stella Karoly finished first four times, while junior team captain Emily Schmied and freshman Adrienne Conte were triple event winners. Schmied teamed with Karoly and Heather O'Neill to take first in the 3x100 butterfly relay at 2:59.02. She and Karoly, in addition to freshman Katie Smith, were also a part of the 3x100 individual medley team that placed ahead of the pack with a time of 3:08.46. In the 8x25 freestyle relay, Schmied, Karoly and Conte, along with five others, combined for a time of 1:34.21 to finish in first place.
In the diving events, freshman Kathleen Heuring won both the one-meter and three-meter. She scored 226.11 in the one-meter and 222.61 in the three-meter. Freshman Joelle Felton and junior Lindsey Minnich finished second and third, respectively, on both boards.
Taming the Lions
* Following San Diego State's victory over Loyola Marymount, the Aztecs improved to 7-0 versus the Lions dating back to the 1999-00 season. In those wins, the Aztecs have won by an average of more than 68 points.
