BYU to face Denver in first meet of 2023
PROVO, Utah — The BYU swim and dive teams will face Denver in their first meet of the new year on Friday, Jan. 6, at the Ritchie Center in Denver, Colorado.
After strong team performances in the Utah Tech Invite and Mizzou Invite in November, the Denver Duel marks the first opportunity for the teams to officially compete in over a month. A win over the Pioneers would give the BYU men's swim and dive teams their fourth head-to-head win of the season, and the women's teams their third. Final results of Friday's events will be posted at the meet's conclusion on byucougars.com.
Last Time Out
The last time the swim and dive teams were in action was over a month ago, as two separate combinations of teams competed in the Utah Tech Invite in St. George, Utah and the Mizzou Invite in Columbia, Missouri. The Cougars performed well in both events, as numerous individual and school records were sent by individual swimmers. At the Mizzou Invite, BYU ultimately placed second in a competitive field full of power 5 teams.
The previous meeting with Denver came at the beginning of 2020, as both the men and women teams suffered a loss at the Richards Building Pool.
The meet will officially begin Friday, Jan. 6 at 2:30 p.m., beginning with the men's and women's dive competitions. Following the dive teams and Denver's senior recognition, the swim meet will begin at 5 p.m.
The order of the events are:
200 Medley Relay
400 Free Relay
