Spartans Travel To Cal State East Bay; Receive National Recognition

San Jose, Calif. - The San Jose State swimming and diving team returns to the road this week traveling to Hayward, Calif., for a dual meet against the Pioneers of Cal State East Bay.  The first race is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Friday.
 
The two teams met on October 8 of last year at UC Santa Cruz with SJSU defeating CSUEB 182-67.  The Spartans, 5-1 in dual meets this season, swam the fastest times in all 15 events, led by three wins apiece from Heather Denman and Julia Craddock.
 
Last week SJSU swam twice.   On Saturday they defeated Cal State Bakersfield 182-92.  On Sunday, in a training mode, they finished second among four teams at the USD Relay Meet.
 
The Pioneers, 1-5 in duals this season, traveled to Fresno State last week and lost 174-62 to the Bulldogs.
 
This will be San Jose State's final road trip prior to the WAC Championships in San Antonio, Texas in late February.  The team will host two dual meets, against Cal State Bakersfield on January 28 and Fresno State on February 5, to finish up its regular season.
