Swimming is tough, don’t let the water and blue caps fool you. Kate Kucharzyk spent a little time with the Vandal’s swimming and diving team and caught some excellent swimming shots, giving everyone an inside look. Vandal swimming and diving came home from California with several individual awards and has a home meet this weekend. They take on Fresno State Friday at 5 p.m. and New Mexico State Saturday at 12 p.m. in the swim center.

If our viewers have time, swing by even for a little bit and give some cheer for these young freshmen and sophomore swimmers and divers who are doing some amazing things, such as holding their own against UCLA and USC, two of the top teams in the nation, this past weekend.

Vandals at home, in the pool and on the track

6 Feb

While the Vandal men’s and women’s hoops squads are on the road this weekend, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any home sports action to watch if you’re in Moscow.

With the basketball teams gone, the Cowan Spectrum has been transformed (Kibbie Dome, more than meets the eye!) back into its track and field configuration for a two-day series of indoor meets – the Vandal Indoor tonight and the Runner’s Soul Open on Saturday. The Vandal runners, jumpers and throwers will be pitted against athletes from nine Northwestern colleges and universities: Central Washington, Eastern Washington, Concordia (Ore.), Washington State, Portland State, Warner Pacific, Whitworth, Lewis-Clark State and Puget Sound.

Meanwhile, over in the Aquatic Center, the Vandal swimmers will face off against the Washington Huskies tonight in their final home meet of the season. The Huskies are coming off a big upset of nationally-ranked UCLA, suggesting that the Vandals will have a tough fight ahead of them if they hope to defend home water.

Vandal Nation will have coverage from both events tonight, including trackside results from the Vandal Indoor.
