• Dominant Gauchos
Andrea Ward is establishing herself as one of the most consistent swimmers for the Gauchos. "She's at the top of her game and I would trust her to hold her own against any of the top swimmers on the west coast", head coach Gregg Wilson said of the senior. Ward is coming off notable performances against FGCU,UCLA, and OSU where she placed 1st in the 100 and 200 yard butterfly with times of 54.09 and 1:59.61, respectively. Sophomore Katie Records had an impressive showing at the meet as well, coming in 1st place in the 100 (1:04.05) and 200 (2:17.10) yard breaststroke.

The Gaucho men have not competed since they split their meets against Cal Poly and Hawaii on October 25th. The men had a solid start to their season with a 1st place finish in the 400 yard freestyle relay, led by the team of Wade Allen, Ryan Hanni, Lucas Norman, and Alex Campbell. The men's diving team is headlined by outstanding freshman Lester Wright who placed second in 1 meter diving at the Cal Poly tri-meet.

• Swimmer's to Watch For UCSD

Coached by Corrie Falcon and Mat Macedo, the Tritons are coming off their first meet and sweep of the early season against Claremond-Mudd-Scripps.
