Cougars fall to Boise State

BOISE, Idaho - The BYU women's swimming and diving fell to Boise State 191-102 Saturday afternoon at the Boise-West Family YMCA despite Kimberly Welch Doroghian winning the 100 fly.

“We swam well and improve from the last meet,” head coach John Brooks said. “Boise State is a great program and it was a great test for us.
