UCLA Swim Meet Canceled Due to Air Quality
LOS ANGELES – The University of California San Diego men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams were unable to compete at UCLA this afternoon due to air quality issues. The Woolsey Fire and Hill Fire have plagued the Los Angeles area, with a state of emergency put in place for the Los Angeles and Ventura counties on Friday afternoon.
UC San Diego’s women were scheduled to compete against UCLA and UC Santa Barbara at 11 a.m., while the men were set to compete solely against UC Santa Barbara.
The meet will be rescheduled based on pool availability. When the date is finalized, it will be reflected on the Tritons’ schedule.
Next, the swimmers will race from Nov. 29-Dec. 1 at the UNLV Invite. During that time, Head Coach David Marsh will bring individuals from the team to the Winter National Championships in Greensboro, N.C. to compete from Nov. 28-Dec. 1.
