It’s the beginning, the middle and the end of the Bruins’ season – at least that is how coach Jordan Wolfrum puts it.
UCLA swim and dive (1-0) will travel to take on Pac-12 rivals USC (0-0) and Arizona (1-1) in a crosstown tri-meet affair this weekend – its second regular-season meet of the year and first meet against conference opponents.
Opportunity was the central theme for the Bruins as they began their pandemic-shortened season.
The UCLA swim and dive (1-0) kicked off its season with a 177-115 win over Fresno State (0-1) this past weekend, the swim team’s first competition since the Pac-12 championship meet 10 months ago.
The Bruins are officially back in the pool.
After UCLA swim and dive saw three of its divers compete in early December, both swim and dive will hit the water this weekend, as UCLA swim takes on Fresno State while the divers compete in the Bruin Diving Invitational featuring UNLV and Utah.
Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard is an age-old adage in sports, and Jordan Wolfrum preaches this with a selfless team culture and is working to further that this year.
