The University of Missouri’s mid-season invite will feature a handful of Division I programs, but also a few top Division II programs this fall.
The school has provided us with a list of expected teams for swimming competition, though the diving field isn’t yet in total focus. The meet looks stronger on the women’s side, where it features 4 teams that scored at last year’s Division I NCAA Championships: Arkansas (19th), Missouri (22nd), Nebraska (33rd), and San Diego State (28th). Meanwhile Drury was second among women’s teams at Division II NCAAs and Truman State 26th.
Here’s the full list, per the University of Missouri:
- Boise State
- San Diego State
- Truman State
None of those teams scored at the men’s NCAA Division I Championships last year. Drury was 18th in Division II and Truman State 31st in Division II.
The Missouri Invite will take place from November 20-22 this fall in Columbia, Missouri. That’s a Wednesday-through-Friday schedule. The team also lists a “long course Trials qualifier” on Tuesday the 19th.
