Friday, Oct. 26 Wright State
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's and women's swimming & diving teams have their first home meet of the season this weekend, taking on conference-foe Wright State Friday at the Klotsche Natatorium at 5 p.m. Both teams are looking to build off last week's strong showing in with wins over Grand Valley State at this week's annual Pink Out meet.
SCOUTING THE MEET
Meanwhile, the Panther women are 4-2 all-time against WSU, also carrying a three-meet winning streak to Friday's action.
The Raiders enter the pool 3-1 overall on both sides, coming off a dual-meet lose to UIC two weeks ago.
LAST TIME IN THE POOL
Milwaukee won the first three events and 10 of the 13 events on the day en route to the team's first win of the season.
On the men's side, three freshmen won their events, sophomore Lee Anderson won both boards and Nathan Welchlin also posted a pair of wins as the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's swimming & diving team swam to a 153-89 win over Grand Valley State at the Fieldhouse Pool Friday evening in Allendale, Mich.
The Panthers lost the opening relay of the day but took 10 of the next twelve events and recorded a pool record on their way to their first win of the season.
OFF TO A FAST START
As a team, the Milwaukee women own the fastest times in the Horizon League in all but six events that they have swam in this year. The Panther men also have a handful of league top-times just one week in, recording the top spot thus far in seven swimming events.
After week one, Emily McClellan won the women's swimming honor after winning an impressive three events against Wisconsin, just missing a pair of NCAA `B' cut times. Meanwhile, K.J. Heger was named the men's top diver after winning both boards against the Badgers in week one, also recording NCAA Zone scores in both wins.
This week it was Lee Anderson's turn. The sophomore took the top men's diver honor after winning both boards at Grand Valley State
