PROVO, UT – BYU swim and dive fans will have another opportunity to watch the teams in the Richards Building Pool during the annual Blue and White meet on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 9:30 a.m. MDT.

“The Blue and White meet is the end of a week full of long activities with the team,” said head coach John Brooks. “This year we are trying out a different format for the meet, with 5x75 relays and other odd distances. It should be fun.”

The Cougars have been participating in running relays, obstacle courses, reaction time and plank competitions, pulling and kicking sets and several other activities to prepare for the meet. The swim meet itself will include several unusual events that the teams have not done before, including 25-meter underwater kicks. The dive team will have a meet of their own along with joining the swimmers in the fun events.

Although none of these events will go towards the actual season, it will be a great indicator for the coaches of where the athletes are at in terms of their progress for the upcoming meets.

Admission to this meet is free and all fans are welcomed to come see the teams in friendly competition. Warmup will begin at 9 a.m. and the meet will follow at 9:30.

The swim and dive teams will come together again in the Richards Building Pool the following week on Friday, Sept. 25, at 5 p.m. MDT for relay races against Utah.
