Swimming Preps for Speedo Cup

Nov. 17, 2004

Malibu, Calif. - For the third weekend this month, Pepperdine's women's swimming and diving team will take on stiff competition, this time in the form of 19 other teams at the Speedo Cup. The three-day event is hosted by UC Irvine and takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

In the team's biggest conference tune-up and their last competition before the holidays, the Waves will again seek big performances from the 2004-05 freshmen. Michelle Sutherland captured the high point title in October at the Malibu Invitation and fellow rookie Katharine Skora impressed at the Big West Shootout as well as last weekend's Pentathlon.

Upperclassmen Ketrina Lemmen and Megan Kelly also figure to contribute generously to Pepperdine's point total in Irvine.

The UCI/Speedo Cup will feature 578 swimmers from 13 men's teams and 20 women's teams.
