NCAA Div. I Women: BYU Skips By San Diego State -- November 16, 2001
PROVO, Utah, November 16. THE BYU women's swimming and diving team easily won against San Diego State 150-91, Friday. This marks the first dual meet ever between the two teams. The Cougars won eight of 13 events and are now 3-0 on the season in dual meet action.
There was no men's meet, as San Diego State does not have a men's team.
All-American Cortnee Adams led the way once again with a win the 50 free, posting a time of 23.68, tops in the Mountain West Conference so far this season. Adams was also the anchor for both winning relay teams in the 400-medley and 400 free.
Sophomore Tamber Covington won two events including the 400 I.M. and 200 breast. Heidi Leitz won the 100 free, competing in the event for the first time this season. Freshman Nichole Burrows competed very well finishing second to MWC Swimming of the Week Meghan Casillan in the 200 back.
"First off, I thought that San Diego State swam very well and have some nice athletes," said head coach Stan Crump. "Tonight we swam better in the backstroke and the breaststroke was competitive as usual."
Kelli Einfeldt once again led the divers, winning both the 1-meter and 3-meter events. Sophomore Rachelle Routsong dove well, posting second place finishes in both events behind her teammate.
BYU switched up some events and rested some key swimmers for their meet tomorrow against Pacific which will start at 1 p.m. in the Richards Building pool. The meet will mark the first dual meet between the universities, and both the men's and women's will compete.
