BYU women’s swim looking to win


The BYU women’s swim and dive team will be in Northern California this weekend taking on the UC Davis Aggies in a dual meet.

“It should be a tough meet. They were the conference champions last year, and they’re the team to beat,” head coach John Brooks said. “We are swimming outdoors, and we had a rough time adjusting to that in Santa Barbara because it’s a little different environment.”

The Cougars are coming off a loss to UNLV and hope to turn things around this weekend. They are seeking their first win of the season, behind Vanessa Moffatt and Ciera Marsh Keller. Moffatt won the 1,000-yard freestyle against the Rebels, while Keller won in the 100-yard backstroke.

Ali Tippetts won her first dive event of the year when she scored a 239.25 in the women’s one-meter dive, while Mackenzie Rands took home a win in the three-meter dive.

“Our team is young, and we’d love to win the meet,” Brooks said. “But most importantly, we want to build off last week and keep improving.”

UC Davis is 2-2 on the season and is coming off a loss to Nevada from this last week. Having won three of the last four conference championships, the Aggies are the defending Mountain Pacific Sports Federation champions

The meet begins at 11 a.m. For results following the meet, check the women’s swim schedule page.
