SAN DIEGO-Boise State women's swimming and diving took second Sunday, at the San Diego Relays. The Broncos won three of the 10 events to finish with 225 points in the field of seven teams. UCLA won the meet with a score of 276.

Boise State claimed victory in the 400-, 800- and 1500-yard freestyle relays. The 400 and 800 races were traditional, four-leg events. The 1500 was comprised of three 500-yard legs. Amber Boucher, Jessica Bottelberghe, Jennifer Cahill and Stephanie North each contributed to two of the winning teams.

Boucher, Bottelberghe, Cahill and North combined to win the 800 freestyle in 7:32.66, good for eighth on the all-time list at Boise State. Boucher, Bottelberghe and North teamed with Shanelle Choi for the 400 freestyle victory in 3:26.86, No. 7 all-time at Boise State. Cahill led off in front of Emily Irvin and Rachel Heaney in the 1500 freestyle.

Following the Bruins and Broncos were San Jose State (211), Rice (168), Tulane (132), San Diego (121 and Colorado College (49).

Keeping with the non-traditional formats, the Boise State diving squad was in Los Angeles for a team competition against UCLA and Nebraska. The teams competed in a six-dive, three-meter event, with six divers from each squad performing one dive. The Broncos finished third with Nebraska taking the win.

Boise State returns home for two dual-meet competitions to complete its regular-season schedule. The Broncos host Oregon State Jan. 21, and Colorado State Jan. 28. The Jan. 21 meet against the Beavers will also feature the return of Big Splash, an exhibition diving competition between members of the Boise State football team.
