FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State has trained all season in preparation of peaking at the right time and after day one and a school record broken, the Bulldogs look as though they are doing just that. The 'Dogs are in sixth place after day one of the WAC Championship, which consisted of the 800 Freestyle Relay and the 200 Yard Medley.
"We broke the school record in the 800 free relay by four seconds today which was really good for us," said head coach Jeanne Fleck. "We had some good swims today that we are excited about so I am really proud of the girls."
Fresno State's 800 Freestyle Relay team (Lucy Titchin, Brooke Fuller, Heidi Gjoen, Courtney Sheehan) timed in at 7:30.53, breaking the school record set back in 2001-02 by almost four seconds (7:34.15). They blew their previous season best time (7:39.18) out of the water too by more than nine seconds.
In the only other race of the night, the 200 Yard Medley, Fresno State's relay team (Alex Madsen, Britney Vogel, Rayanne Nguyen, Dani Yoho) swam a season best time with a 1:43.35, three seconds faster than their previous season best time.
The WAC Championship action continues tomorrow at Palo Alto College Natatorium in San Antonio, Texas with the 500 Yard Freestyle, 200 Individual Medley, 50 Freestyle, 1-meter diving and the 200 Freestyle Relay. Prelims begin at 9:00 a.m. and the finals start at 4:30 p.m.
