Tigers Trip To Rival UC Davis For Dual Meet
The Pacific women's swimming team will renew its rivalry with UC Davis this Saturday, Jan. 12, when the Tigers journey up I-5 for a dual meet against the host Aggies. The meet is set to begin at noon at the Schaal Aquatics Center.
Saturday's meet is the second time the two squads have faced each other this season. UC Davis swam on the second day of the Pacific Invitational back in October, scoring 422 points. The Tigers finished second overall with 706 points, 363 of which came on the second day.
Pacific opened 2013 with a dual meet at nationally ranked Stanford last weekend. The Tigers were fresh off of a grueling training trip in Las Vegas, Nev., that saw the team compete at the three-day UNLV Winter Invitational before spending additional time doing extensive training.
Junior Hayley Shillington swam well against the Cardinal, finishing with times of 1:52.82 in the 200 Free and 52.79 in the 100 Free, both of which were fast enough to edge one Stanford swimmer. Sophomore Dekel Shahaff also beat out a Cardinal racer, taking third in the 100 Fly behind a time of 57.76.
UC Davis is 4-2 in dual meets this season, but has been idle from competition since Dec. 2. The Aggies competed at the Missouri Invitational to end the first half of their season, breaking three school records at the championship-style meet. UC Davis finished third out of nine teams.
