Bulldog Swimming had a busy weekend. We participated it the Blue Devil Invitational at the BLATT on the USC campus on Sunday. Huge Shout out to Dianne Hartness who took time out of her busy, pre-homecoming week Sunday to show these ladies support! They were all so happy to have you in the stands!
Out of the 30 teams in attendance from all divisions, our 7 swimmers placed 11th over all in the Women's Division!
The bulldogs individually and in combined effort swam in 10 of 11 events and accomplished the following:
3 Automatic State Cut Time individual events,
1 Automatic State Cut Time Relay event,
1 State Consideration Time relay,
5 State Consideration Time individual events.
Automatic times are guaranteed a spot in the Championship meet. Consideration times fill the remaining 30 individual slots in individual events and 20 spots in relay events. We have 2 more opportunities to push these consideration times into the automatic field.
