FRESNO, Calif.- The Fresno State swimming and diving team resumes competition this week as the Bulldogs head to Los Angeles, Calif., to square off in dual meet competition against high profile opponents UCLA and Kansas. The `Dogs have been training hard in preparation for this event as they have not competed in dual meet competition since Nov. 21 at the Toshiba Classic. Head coach Jeanne Fleck has implemented two-a-day practices into the Bulldogs training and conditioning during the break, in order to have her team well prepared as the meat of the season approaches.

Scouting the Jayhawks
The Kansas Jayhawks come out of the Big 12 Conference and look to be good competition for the Bulldogs. The Jayhawks earned a 10-3 dual meet record last season, finished fourth in the Big 12 and 36 overall at the NCAA championships. The Jayhawks were ranked in the preseason Top 25 and sit at 2-3 on the season.

Scouting the Bruins
Coming out of the highly competitive PAC-10 conference, the UCLA Bruins have a record of 3-1 at this point in the season and finished an impressive third place overall out of the 25 schools who competed in the Toshiba Classic. UCLA finished sixth in the PAC-10 and 41st overall in the NCAA last season. The Bruins swimming and diving team is full of NCAA qualifier hopefuls and is poised to be a good challenge for the Bulldogs.
