WSU swimming traveled to Fresno, California, for the Chick-Fil-A Invitational on Friday and Saturday. The invite consisted of three sets of races spread out over the course of two days.

In overall results the Cougars placed fourth of six teams with a score of 380 points. WSU had seven top-five finishes and 25 finishes inside the top 20.

Head Coach Matt Leach was impressed with the performance but knows that there is still room to grow and techniques to work on.

“We ended the meet on a great note with executing,” Leach said in a WSU news release. “Great job by everybody. We’re excited to continue to grow.”

Sophomore Sam Howell and junior Ryan Falk had excellent finishes in the 1650 yard freestyle. Falk placed second with a time of 17:29.17, and Howell was not too far behind with a sixth-place finish at a time of 17:57.52. Senior Jasmine Margetts performed well during the 200 yard butterfly, clocking in at 2:04.30 for a fifth-place time.

Freshman Keiana Fountaine earned her fourth top-five finish of the season so far. Two of these top-five finishes came from the 200 yard freestyle and the 100 yard freestyle. In the 200 free, Fountaine came in at 1:50.87 for third place. Fountaine’s 51.66 time in the 100 free gave her the second top-five finish of the invite.

The Cougars return home to compete at Gibb Pool for the first time this season against defending national champion Stanford University at 2 p.m. Friday.
