Where Are Top 25 Teams Racing During NCAA Midseason Invites?

Midseason invites are upon us, with less than one week until the vast majority of Power Five schools take to pools across the country with (varying degrees) of rest for the first time (maybe) this season.

We released our pre-invite NCAA Power Rankings on Friday, and now we’ll outline where each of the teams that cracked the top 25 will be racing at midseason.

The Tennessee Invite will feature the host Vols alongside Virginia and Virginia Tech, the NC State Invite will feature Arizona State alongside the host Wolfack, and an intriguing lineup will join the Buckeyes at the Ohio State Invite with Louisville, Indiana and Notre Dame.

Texas will host USC, Stanford and Wisconsin in Austin, while SEC foes will square off in Athens as the Bulldogs host Florida and Auburn at the UGA Invite, along with Michigan and FSU.

Is the Texas invite new? Didn’t WI and Texas go the Minnesota invite usually?

Texas has swum at the Minnesota Invite the last three years or so, but before that they held and swam at the Texas Invite for decades.

When Texas has hosted the invite before (sometimes known as the Hall of Fame Invite) it’s typically been 2 weeks later I think. Maybe leaving room to go to US Open and make trials cuts?

25 years ago Texas Invite was one of the few invites. So many of the top 25 teams were there. It was crazy fast, but it was so stacked with talent that teams couldn’t get second swims (even with some events having five heats of finals), so all the other meets started popping up. And it was always after thanksgiving.

UNC is sending swimmers to Princeton and the US Open this year, not Tennessee.

I believe OSU Invite is LCM qualifying, SCY finals.

Art Adamson is LCM for prelims, and SCY for finals.
