In it’s inaugural year, the Big 10 Stampede will be bringing together 10 of the nation’s top senior swimming programs to compete in a meet specifically designed to offer incredible top end competition, but also the “team” environment that will lead to some fun competition. Between February 26th and March 1st, roughly 500 swimmers from these 10 programs, 7 of which have been Silver level programs or higher, will compete in a short course prelims and long course finals format.
The meet will be hosted by Lakeside Aquatic Club and help in the beautiful new facility, Lewisville ISD Westside Aquatic Center. This competition will no doubt provide excellent opportunities for the national level swimmers to compete against each other and result in some great swimming, but will also offer an opportunity, in the same meet, for those developing senior and national level swimmers to earn spots in finals and post new cuts before the summer season officially begins.
Led by Coach Walter and Coach Bauer (from The Woodlands Swim Team), these ten coaches have been looking for a competition like this in early March for a while, and have now decided to create their own opportunity for fast swimming. Keep an eye out for some fast swimming to be coming out of Texas that weekend.
