The San Jose State University women’s swimming and diving team, under the direction of fourth-year head coach Sage Hopkins, will travel to San Antonio, Texas, on Monday, February 23.
The Spartans will be looking to improve on back-to-back-to-back best-ever fourth-place finishes at the event over Hopkins’ first three seasons in charge of the program, move into the top two or three, and even challenge two-time defending WAC champion Nevada for the crown. San Jose State has topped the Wolf Pack three times this season, twice in dual meets, as well as at the UCI/Nike Cup in Long Beach, Calif., back in November.
Heather Denman enters this weekend with the top marks in the conference in four separate events (100 back, 200 back, 100 fly, 200 fly), while fellow freshman Amy Friedhoff would likely be the top seed in both distance freestyle events (500, 1650). Meghan McCurley (50 free), Lauren Mar (100 free) and Julia Koch (200 free) also currently have the fastest times in the WAC in their respective specialties.
