Cyclones Slug it Out in Santa Cruz

On Friday, the Cyclones headed south to UC Santa Cruz where the Banana Slugs hosted Mills College, Biola University, CSU East Bay, and the College of Idaho for swimming and diving.

Several Cyclones swam lifetime best times and in-season best times.

Senior Maggie Krystad swam an in-season best time in the 500 free by dropping 10 seconds of her swim. Her 200 IM swim was right on with her lifetime best, posting a time of 3.03.20. Aine Piedad improved their in-season best time from the CSU East Bay meet in the 200 IM, swimming a time of 2.55.11. Juliana Taboada swam the 200 free for the first time and dropped 5 seconds off their 100 free racetime, swimming a lifetime best. Sophomore Lici Zimmerman swam two lifetime bests in the 50 and 100 free, dropping 4 seconds off her 100 free time.
