Submitted By Scott Chisholm
Cal State East Bay dropped a 146-59 dual meet decision to No. 6 nationally ranked UC San Diego on Saturday, December 21, at the Canyonview Aquatic Center. The host Tritons won all 11 events en route to the victory.
SaturdayÕs schedule had all the events swam as long course meter distances (50 meter lengths) as opposed to the traditional short course distances of 25 yard lengths. It was the first time in over two years the Tritons had hosted a long course meet.
Senior Caitlin DeNise posted a pair of individual runner-up finishes in the 50-meter freestyle (27.65) and 100-meter freestyle (1:01.41). Brittany Rojo took second in the 100-meter butterfly (1:07.10) as did Kamaehu Alboro in the 100 back (1:11.47) and Courtney Schwiesow in the 100 breast (1:17.99).
ÒCaitlin continued to swim very, very well todayÓ said East Bay Head Coach Ben Loorz. DeNise is coming off a huge performance at the La Verne Winter Invitational highlighted by three school records and 10 NCAA ÒBÓ cut times. ÒCourtney also put in a nice effort today in the breaststroke and nearly got the victory.Ó
Eva Chen, Colleen Daley, and Sierra Gage each won a pair of individual events for UC San Diego.
