PROVO -- The BYU swimming and diving teams took to the pool again after yesterday's win against Utah and Villanova for the annual Blue/White meet with alumni to wrap up homecoming week on campus.

The current team split to create the Blue and White teams and former Cougars jumped in extra lanes and swam exhibition to see how they matched up with the team.

Women's swimming coach Stan Crump said the team showed much stronger times at the Blue/White meet than yesterday's relays.

"We got out the first-meet jitters last night," Crump said. "The girls did much better tonight."

Senior Brittany Davis swam strong for the Cougars taking the 500 free at 5:08.31.

On the men's side, junior Brett Allen led the pack earning a 19:58 in the final leg of the 200 medley relay, and taking first in the 50 free and 100 free. Junior Jorge Azevedo also made good time, taking first in the 100 back with a 50.41.

"I am pleased with the guys' times tonight," said men's swimming coach Tim Powers. "We swam well, even after competing last night."

Diving coach Keith Russell said the divers performed at their optimum, but they'll just keep getting better.

"It's early in the season still and we'll take the time we have to prepare," Russell said.
