Cougars to host Colorado Mesa and Boise State
PROVO, Utah – BYU swimming and diving hosts Colorado Mesa and Boise State in its first home dual meet of the season Saturday at the Richards Building pool.
“We’re swimming in our facility this weekend and we know it better than anyone else so we have the home pool advantage,” BYU head coach John Brooks said. “The women swam against Boise last year but Boise has a good group of girls that want to perform against us as well. For the men’s team, we have some athletes who will be swimming some events they don’t usually swim.”
The men’s team will compete against Colorado Mesa again after a big 266-95 win in the Intermountain Shootout. Cougar freshman Rainer Ng will compete for the men after earning Male Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Athlete of the Week for three individual wins in his college debut.
The women’s team will compete against Boise State and is looking to redeem itself after last year’s 191-102 loss in Boise. Senior Hailey Campbell will lead her team after a great performance in the season opener to earn Female MPSF Athlete of the Week.
Both the Mavericks and the Broncos will compete against Utah in Salt Lake City on Friday before heading down to Provo to face the Cougars.
The diving team will compete in its first official meet of the season at the competition. BYU senior Raleigh Williams Taylor and junior Nicholas Suder will head the diving team in hopes of their first victory of the season.
The meet begins at noon on Oct. 26. For results of the dual meet, check the men’s schedule page.
