This Week

The Utah Swimming and Diving women's team heads to Corvallis, Ore., where it will face Oregon State and UCLA Saturday at 1 p.m. PT. Quoting Coach Winslow "This will be a good meet to gauge where our team sits in Pac-12 competition. These are two consistent top-20 teams that we can be very competitive with," said Utah head coach Greg Winslow. "It will be good for our women to get used to being without the men's team because that's how the Pac-12 Championships will be. It will be a fun meet for us.
