Los Angeles, Calif. - Returning to competition for the first time since December 3, Loyola Marymount swimming will take to the pool Saturday at the University of San Diego. The Lions will face the familiar Toreros at the USD Sports Center Pool beginning at 11:00 a.m.

The dual will mark the first competition of 2006 for the Lions, who last faced four teams in a five way dual at San Jose State on December 3. There, LMU defeated UC Santa Cruz 207-86, but fell to Idaho, Nevada Reno, and the host Spartans.

LMU and USD have already met this season, with both teams participating in the competitive Speedo Cup in Long Beach. The Lions clinched a ninth place finish, while San Diego finished 11th.

This will be just the fourth dual meet of the season, where the Lions will face just one other team. LMU enters the meet with a 2-1 dual record.
