STOCKTON, Calif. – The Pacific women’s swimming team (1-0) put a check in the win column for its first meet of the season at home.

The Tigers beat the Pioneers of Cal State East Bay 167-95 at the Chris Kjeldsen Pool on Saturday morning.

“I couldn’t be more proud of these ladies. I think that this year, coming in, they knew how they wanted to start this season, and they set the tone with this meet today; that was exciting to see,” said Head Coach Katelyne Herrington. “We’ve been focusing on seizing the race opportunities, and I think we saw that today in several events when we swept one, two, three. That was both in the 200 free and the 500 free; those were huge upsets for us compared to where we were last year at this time. We also took one, two, three in the 100 and 200 back; that was awesome. We took one, two and three in the 200 fly. Those were huge standout races for our ladies, and I couldn’t be more happy and proud to see them have those incredible races.”

The Tiger team of sophomore Jordyn Gonzales, sophomore Paige Sondgeroth, sophomore Noemi Melendez and sophomore Alexia Ferguson took first in the 200-yard medley relay to start the meet.
