Nov. 9, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - The Pepperdine women's swimming and diving team will make the short trip across town to compete in the LMU Pentathlon on Saturday at the Burns Aquatic Center. The Waves, Cal State Northridge and host LMU are set for the three-team meet which begins at 10 a.m.

Each swimmer enters one of the three competitions: the short medley, long medley, or freestyle. Each competition includes five races, with the swimmers' times being added from each of their five races. Within each competition, the swimmer with the lowest time will be declared the winner. Awards are given to the top 10 swimmers in each race.

Last year, the Waves turned out a first place finish in the freestyle event.
