Oregon State Women’s Swimming - Alumni Return for a Morning of CompetitionSalem-News.com Sports
(CORVALLIS, Ore.) - The Oregon State women’s swim team hosted its annual Alumni Relays this Saturday at Stevens Natatorium in Dixon Recreation Center. Both men and women alumni attended the event to get a chance to compete with the current team and against each other. Former men’s swimming head coach Bill Winkler was there to support the team as well.
“The men’s program was canceled in 1974 and the coach is still working here. Bill Winkler, has athletes that are very loyal to him and come every year. It’s a great time for everybody and they have a real good time racing,” Oregon State women’s head coach Larry Liebowitz said after the meet.
The alum and current women’s team mixed into two teams, orange and black. After competing in 11 events the orange team came out on top in the final relay, which involves everyone on the team.
There was a great crowd of supporters there to cheer everyone on. After the meet everyone had lunch and headed over to the football game together. This annual meet is a great way to get the alumni involved and give them a chance to get back in the pool and compete again.
“It’s a great day and I think they all have fun,” Liebowitz said. “The parents like watching it and people like doing it so the tradition keeps going. I hope we can keep doing it forever.”
The Beavers head back to the pool for competition Nov. 18-20 at the Arena Invitational in Long Beach, California.
