HOUSTON – The University of Houston Swimming & Diving team will return to home to the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center for its home opener against Tulane at 10 a.m. on Thursday.

The Cougars are fresh off a pair of road wins in San Antonio after knocking off Incarnate Word and UT-Permian Basin in their season opener. Houston secured seven first-place individual finishes and swept the relays, as both Kathryn Power and Samantha Medlin each posted a pair of top-three finishes. On the boards, the Cougars won both the 1-meter and 3-meter, sweeping the 3-meter springboard after securing each of the top-five spots.


  • Tulane is coming off a 192-105 loss to LSU on Sept. 28 in Baton Rouge after posting four individual first-place finishes and one relay win.
  • Tulane is in second season under Head Coach Leah Stancil.
  • Last season the Green Wave secured a fourth-place finish at The American Championships.


Houston will remain in Houston as the swimmers’ head across town to Rice for the Rice Invitational and the divers host the Houston Diving Invitational on Oct. 11-12.
