RALEIGH, N.C.- The NC State swimming and diving team is set to open its home schedule for the 2015-16 season as it hosts Florida State Saturday. This marks the first of three home meets for the Pack.
The ACC matchup is slated for an 11 a.m. start inside Casey Aquatic Center.
“We’re looking forward to our first home meet of the season this weekend, hosting Florida State. We’re excited to be at home in front of our fans, alumni, friends and family, and we take a lot of pride in competing in our pool. This will be the first dual meet for the men’s team, and our women will get a chance to compete again after a great showing in California last weekend,” said head coach Braden Holloway.
“Florida State is a well-coached team that is continuously getting better. They’re a quality team that always provides great competition for us every year, so we’re looking forward to a great meet day. There will be a lot of great racing and diving, and fans will get a chance to see some of the country’s best match up against each other.”
