Southern Methodist University women’s swimming and diving team will host the 26th Annual SMU Classic this Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12 at the Robson & Lindley Aquatics Center and Barr-McMillion Natatorium in Dallas, Texas. Meet is set to start at 6:30pm on Friday and 11am on Saturday with swimmers from SMU, Auburn (No.11), Miami, Louisville (No.13), Iowa, and Northwestern expected to make an appearance.

The SMU Classic is a fun, fast-paced meet following a different format than a typical college dual meet. Over a two day span, the meet will feature 12 individual events, four relays, and two diving events. The biggest catch; each school’s roster can only consist of eight swimmers and one diver. Individual events will run two heats (Consolation & Championship) and only one swimmer per school will be allowed in each heat, with a maximum participation in three events per day.

At the 2018 invite, multiple swimmers achieved NCAA invite times in both individual, relay, and diving events. Grace Oglesby of Louisville cruised to a 51.65 in the 100 butterfly, while SMU’s Andrea Podmaníková dropped a 2:09.57 in the 200 breaststroke.

Louisville took over the pool last year, winning the SMU Classic title with a score of 358 points with USC in second with 312. This meet boasts some of the most competitive swimming we will see until the mid-season invites, at least.

Thanks. Usually some fast swims at this meet….especially when they swam in the “dungeon”!
