Aztecs Hit The Road For Dual-Meets Against Northern Colorado, Wyoming
* The San Diego State swimming and diving team (2-3, 1-3 MWC) heads to the Rocky Mountains this weekend to face the Bears of Northern Colorado on Friday and the Wyoming Cowgirls on Saturday.
The Aztecs will look to even their record by trying to defeat their second non-conference opponent of the season (Loyola Marymount, W, 53-19, Oct. 16) Friday afternoon.
* Coming off a three-day road trip, the San Diego State swimming and diving team dropped a 144-94 decision to Brigham Young at the Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center. The Aztecs fell to 2-3 overall and 1-3 in the MWC.
The Aztecs were led by sophomore Emily Parker's win in the 1000-yard freestyle. Parker finished ahead of the pack with a time of 10:34.72, eight seconds in front of Brigham Young's Shannon Bloom (10:42.60).
Sophomore Caitlin Friedhoff continued her streak of strong performances by winning the 100-yard freestyle event with a time of 53.78.
Friedhoff also recorded a team season-best time in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:55.28, finishing in second place. The previous team high was 1:56.87, set by Friedhoff against Air Force on Nov. 3.
Others who recorded team season-best times were sophomore Stella Karoly (59.25 - 100 fly) and freshmen Katie Smith (1:01.20 - 100 back) and Joelle Felton (234.37 - one-meter diving).
Friedhoff On Fire
* Through four Mountain West Conference dual-meets, Caitlin Friedhoff has finished first at least once three times (vs. Utah; vs. Air Force; vs. BYU).
Against the Air Force Academy, the sophomore from Kent, Wash., recorded two first place finishes. In the 200-yard freestyle she clocked in with a time of 1:56.87 and in the 100-yard freestyle she finished the race in 53.93.
In the conference opener, Friedhoff swam to a time of 53.52 in the 100-yard freestyle on her way to a first place showing and a team season-best mark.
Last Friday against Brigham Young, she recorded a time of 1:55.28, another team season-best mark, taking second in the 200-yard freestyle.
To date, Friedhoff has won a total of four events in four conference meets.
