For the second straight weekend, LMU women's swimming will host a double dual meet at Burns Aquatics Center, this time welcoming San Diego and UC Davis to campus on Sunday at Noon.

The Lions hosted Seattle University and Grand Canyon University a weekend ago, competing in a pair of double duals. The Lions defeated Seattle U on Friday to split that dual, but dropped both ends of the meet on Saturday. Following the meets, sophomore Lanna Kozlowski took home Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference Division I Athlete of the Week honor.

In Friday's double-dual meet, Kozlowski earned valuable points in LMU's close battle with Seattle U, placing second overall in the 500 freestyle (1st vs Seattle U) with a time of 5:16.19 and placing fourth in the 400 IM (2nd vs. Seattle U) with a 4:44.74. Kozlowski's points contributed to LMU's thin margin over Seattle U, 105.5 to 96.5.

On Saturday Kozlowski picked up a couple of third-place finishes in the distance freestyle events, first swimming the 1000 Freestyle in a time of 10:54.00. She returned in the 500 Freestyle posting a time of 5:17.13. Seattle U. was the victor in the dual with LMU on Saturday winning by a score of 114-90.

San Diego enters the weekend winless in dual meets this year, dropping decisions to San Diego State, USC and UCLA. In the most recent setback to UCLA, Danielle Taylor earned two first-place finishes to highlight San Diego's performance. Taylor sprinted to back-to-back victories in the 50-yard freestyle (24.36) and 100 free (52.58). Her showings were among a number of impressive individual performances by the Toreros.

 

 

UC Davis will make the most of its time in Southern California, visiting UCLA on Saturday before the meet on Sunday. The Aggies will face the Bruins, Washington State and Arkansas on Saturday. Saturday’s meet will mark the Aggies’ return to competition since hosting their first dual against San Diego State just one week ago, when junior Eva Chung took home top honors in three events while junior Solie Laughlin won the 200 back and touched second in the 100 back.

The Lions dropped separate meets to USD and UC Davis a year ago. Following Sunday's competition, LMU will head to the A3 Invitational beginning on November 16.
