For head women’s coach  Steve Bultman’s  team, it will be the first action since overpowering Rice at the Rec on Dec. 20, while head men’s coach Jay Holmes’ squad will be seeing its first action since the Art Adamson Invitational in late November. Friday’s dual will also be the Aggie men’s final home competition of 2013-14 and 10 seniors will be recognized prior to the meet.

Georgia will bring a pair of top 10 teams to the Rec with the women’s squad at No. 4 and the men’s team at No. 10. For the Aggies, the women’s squad is ranked No. 2 nationally while the men’s team is receiving votes in the CSCAA dual meet rankings but are just outside the top 25.

The seniors being recognized prior to Friday’s meet are: Jack Burley (College Station, Texas), Omar Enriquez (San Andreas Tuxtla, Mexico), Simon Frank (Stockholm, Sweden), Henrik Lindau (Karlskrona, Sweden), Bryan Michaels (Shoreline, Wash.), Antonio Page-Kahn (Albuquerque, N.M.), Adam Ruiz (Lubbock, Texas), Paul-Marc Schweitzer (Boersch, France), Kyle Troskot (Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada) and Donnie Walker (San Antonio, Texas).

In addition to battling the defending SEC and NCAA team champion Bulldogs on Friday, the women’s squad will face old Southwest Conference rival SMU in a 1 p.m. dual meet on Saturday at the Rec.

Admission to all of the Aggies’ home meets is free, and a live video stream and live results will be available at AggieAthletics.com.

Never seen his name at the French nationals. But the NCAA championships and the French nationals are often at the same period so it’s perhaps the reason. I see on his bio he has a decent 200 free record and the second fastest 500 free in program’s history. I also see that his dream date would be Natalie Portman.
