Washington State Lady Cougars Squeak By Cal State-Northridge in Relay Meet

PULLMAN, Wash., Nov. 8. THE Washington State University women’s swim team defeated Cal State – Northridge in a relay meet Friday 114-112. The relay meet was a first for the Cougars this season.

WSU jumped out to a 78-54 lead after four events, but a disqualification in the 400 yard medley relay proved costly for the Cougars. Cal State tied the meet at 78 after that event. The Cougs entered the final event down by four (96-92), but were able to outscore the Matadors 22-16 in the 200 freestyle relay to grab a two point victory.

"The team did a good job," Coach Quam said. "It came down to the last relay where had to finish one-three to pull out a victory and we did."

WSU placed first in six of the seven relay events.

The Cougars and Matadors square off in a dual meet Saturday at 10 a.m. at Gibb Pool.
