Los Angeles – On Saturday, March 8, FSN PRIME TICKET airs the 2008 Pac-10 Women’s Swimming Championships from Long Beach, Calif. Beginning at 12 PM, the regional sports network delivers event highlights and championship day coverage. Olympic Gold Medalist and former Pac-10 standout Amanda Beard is the event analyst.

Beard, a seven-time Olympic Medalist and NCAA individual champion for the University of Arizona, contributes expert analysis while play-by-play announcer Ted Robinson calls the action. The Pac-10 Women’s Swimming Championships were held Wednesday, February 27 through Saturday, March 1 at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool.
