San Diego, Calif.----- The San Jose State University women's swimming team was edged by Boise State University, 251.5-248.5, in the three-team University of San Diego Relay meet at the USD Sports Center Pool.

The host Toreros finished third with 137 points.

In their second meet in as many days, the Spartans trailed the Broncos by a point, 224.5-223.5, going into the final event, the 400 freestyle relay. Boise State won the meet with first and a fourth compared to San Jose State's second and third place finishes in the race.

"I'm proud of how well we competed against them. Boise State is the top team in the Mountain West. They have depth and top-end swimmers," said San Jose State head coach Sage Hopkins. "First and foremost, I'm very happy with our competitiveness and how tough we were. We're in a good place mentally right now.

"We were mentally sharp and that's what we want. It was a very good overall team performance."

The Spartans' only victory in the 10-event competition was the 3x100 breaststroke relay with Jenner Johnson, Dominique Yoder and Taylor Solorio swimming for San Jose State. The Spartans head coach praised his B entries which notched seven third-place finishes compared to none for Boise State B relays which kept the meet winner in doubt until the end.

San Jose State concludes three consecutive days of competition with a dual meet against UC San Diego, Sunday, January 5. First race is at 11:00 a.m.
