FRESNO, Calif.-- The Azusa Pacific women’s swimming and diving team kicked off its 2011-12 season at the Pacific Coast Swimming Conference (PCSC) relays on Friday night in Fresno.
The Cougars had four top-five finishes on the day, ending in 5th place behind Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine, among others.
“It was a good first day,” said Head Coach Tim Kyle after his team participated in some uncommon relays. “We had some really great swims. I was pleased with how we did. A lot of the events weren’t really what we’re going to swim throughout the year, but it was still fun.”
The women had their best showing in the 300 breast relay as Cameron Hagen , Sara Zandihn, and Simone Garcia posted a time of 3:34.08 to finish in 3rd place, ahead of reigning NAIA national champions California Baptist and NCAA Div. I Loyola Marymount.
The team of Malerie Morgan, Hagen, Victoria Gibb, and Quinn Robertson clocked in at 4:10.41 in the 400 medley relay to place 4th.
The Cougars will get back in the pool tomorrow for the PCSC Pentathlon where swimmers will compete in individual races.
