PROVO, Utah — After a week of finals, the BYU women’s swimming and diving teams compete against Boise State on Saturday at noon MST at the Boise-West Family YMCA.

"We are excited to go compete against Boise State this weekend," head coach John Brooks said. "They are a young program and are making great strides. It will be interesting to see how both teams respond at the meet after both going through finals week."

The Cougars' last meet was against Utah in the Deseret First Duel where they lost 181-117. In that meet, the 200 IM relay team consisting of Hailey Campbell, Kassandra Bispo, Kimberly Welch Doroghian and Alexandria Sorensen took first. Doroghian also won the 200 fly.

In the dive pool, Dayna Christensen, Raleigh Williams Taylor and Mackenzie Rands swept the top three spots in the 3-m.

The last time these two schools met in a duel meet was in 2009 at the Richards Building Pool with BYU coming away victorious, 199-99.

Boise State is coming off a second-place finish at the Missouri Invitational two weeks ago. The Broncos were also idle last weekend in preparation for finals week.
