HARRISONBURG, Va., Feb. 14, 2012 -- The James Madison swimming and diving team returns to action this week at the UVA Cavalier Invitational in Charlottesville Va., for a two-day meet beginning Friday, Feb. 15.
"After a couple of weeks off, this meet is the perfect opportunity for us to race," head coach Samantha Smith said. "It is a prelim/final format over the course of two days with many talented teams competing. For us, the goal is to race hard as one unit. There is always excitement surrounding this time of year and we are looking forward to some exciting swims."
For swimming, this weekend’s meet is the team’s first competition since the Jan. 19 meet against Rutgers. The Dukes won the dual meet against Rutgers, 165-135, to finish the season with eight straight dual meet victories.
The invitational is the final tune up for the Dukes before the Colonial Athletic Association Championships. Friday’s action gets started from UVA’s Aquatic and Fitness Center at 10:00 a.m.
