Spartans Going For A 7-Meet Winning Streak

San Jose, Calif. --- The San Jose State University women's swimming and diving team goes after its seventh consecutive dual meet win, Saturday, January 19, against the University of Nevada. The meet begins at 11:00 a.m. at the Lombardi Swimming Complex on the University of Nevada's campus.

The Spartans (6-1) won their sixth straight win after defeating UC San Diego, 183-109, at the Canyonview Aquatics Center on January, 6.

As a team, San Jose State did not compete in dual meet action the weekend of January 13, but divers Amy Kilby and Jessica Holden turned in strong performances at the three-day Bruin Diving Invitational in Los Angeles. Kilby earned Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Diver of the Week honors finishing fifth in the 3-meter and eighth in the 1-meter events.
