Two home meets and a dual meet with Big Ten foe Ohio State highlight the Toledo women’s swimming and diving team’s schedule for the 2016-17 season, announced head coach Jonas Persson on Monday.

“I’m really happy with our schedule this season,” said Persson. “Having meets against very competitive MAC teams allows us to compete at a high level. We were able to add Ohio State to our slate, which is big step for us in the right direction. Our swimmers and divers are ready to step up and battle the Buckeyes. It will be a fun year for the Rockets!”
