SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Saturday February 3, 2007 will be the last home dual meet for UCSB as they welcome Big West rivals University of the Pacific to Campus Pool. It will also be the last dual meet for the eight graduating seniors on the team including star swimmers Pat Cary and Jen Schwalb.
On the men's side Pat Cary, Doug Formby, Dan Leelachat, Scott Lindberg and Brent Nolan will have to say goodbye to competing in Campus Pool. For the women, captains Jen Schwalb and Katie Moeckel both will be graduating and saying goodbye as well. During a break in the meet Saturday a short ceremony will be held honoring the seniors and their accomplishments as great swimmers and student athletes.
