FRESNO, Calif. -- The Fresno State women's swimming and diving team will host Fresno Pacific, Pacific and UC Santa Cruz in a dual meet this Saturday, November 9, at the Aquatics Center. Fresno Pacific, Pacific and UC Santa Cruz will also have their men's teams in action.
The `Dogs return home after a tough meet in the altitude at Nevada. Despite losing the head-to-head dual with the Wolf Pack, Fresno State saw a record performance from one of its top performers.
Senior Hannah Prigge, already the school-record holder in the 3-Meter Dive, scored 315.60 to set a new school-record in the 1-Meter Dive. She has already qualified for the NCAA Zone E Diving Regionals in March based on her scores in the first two meets of the year.
Fresno State freshman Hailee Baldwin ranks in the top ten in the Mountain West in both the 100 and 200 Breaststroke. Her 2:20.95 in the 200 ranks fourth and her 1:06.55 is good for tenth in the conference.
Sophomore Leah Hatayama, counted on to be a big contributor for the `Dogs, is ranked seventh in the 50 Freestyle with a time of 23.90. She is also part of the third-fastest 800 Freestyle Relay team in the Mountain West, teaming up with Lucy Titchin, Brooke Fuller and Kelly Simmons to record a 7:45.65.
Swimming action begins at noon on Saturday at the Aquatics Center. Each event will feature a women's race followed by a men's race. Saturday is also Staff and Faculty Appreciation Day.
