Orange and black, meet orange and black: Pioneer women take on Division I Oregon State

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the women’s team traveled south to Oregon State University for a dual meet. I love the chance to race fast, new competition and this was a great opportunity. This was also the end of a string of several meets for our team. With Winter Training barely in our rearview mirrors, our women swam tough, tired races and had fun traveling together.
Ten of our men caravanned down to Corvallis on their own to cheer on their teammates and this had a big impact on the noise level and the excitement during the meet. We usually train, travel and compete together, so it was natural for our men to want to support the women. I loved seeing them organize for the trip down to the meet.
Afterward, OSU joined our swimmers for pizza and chit-chat in what turned out to be a great opportunity to showcase our matching school colors.
