PROVO, Utah –The BYU men’s and women’s swimming teams travel to California to participate in the Pacific Invite this weekend.

Last year, the women’s team scored 1129 points to finish in first place, while the men’s team scored 829.5 to finish in second place behind Stanford.

"I'm looking forward to a larger group of swimmers to participate in the meet this weekend," head coach John Brooks said. "This will be a good benchmark for the team to see where they are at and where they need to improve."

Last weekend the Cougars hosted alumni in a meet to continue preparing for the season. Freshman Preston Jenkins and junior Jordan Fletcher both won two events for the men’s team. The women’s team showed its depth with a different swimmer winning every event.

The team will participate in a relay meet on Thursday with the University of Pacific and compete in the Pacific Invitational on Friday. 

The Pacific Invitational will begin  Friday at 1 p.m. PDT.

The streaming is free of charge and will begin approximately five minutes before the start of the meet.
