Swimming Travels to TYR Pacific Invitational
CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State swim team (0-1 Pac-10), will head down to Stockton, Calif. to compete in the two-day TYR Pacific Invitational. The invitational will begin Friday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m., and conclude Saturday, Oct. 18, at 12:30 p.m.
“This meet is a great early season opportunity for the swimmers to go and swim in a lot of events,” head coach Larry Liebowitz said. “It’s not the same as a dual meet where you are limited to only swimming two events and some relays. Here they get to swim in a lot of events and get a real indication of where they are this year.”
Swimmers will be allowed to swim in eight total events with a maximum of five individual events.
On Friday, swimmers will compete in the 200 medley relay, 200 freestyle, 400 individual medley, 50 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 400 freestyle relay and the 1,650 freestyle.
During the final day of competition, swimmers will compete in the 200 freestyle relay, 200 butterfly, 100 backstroke, 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley, 100 freestyle, 200 backstroke, 100 butterfly, 200 breaststroke and the 800 freestyle relay.
Also competing at the TYR Pacific Invite will be the University of Pacific, Washington State, Cal Poly and UC Davis.
Oregon State takes the pool again Friday Oct. 24, at 5 p.m. when the Beavers host Rice in a two-day dual meet.
