Wolfpack Men’s 18-19 Schedule Features IU Invite, Tri Meet At Texas

The NC State Wolfpack men have released their schedule for the upcoming 2018-19 season, and it will feature a few changes to what they did during last year’s campaign.

Notably, the team will head to the IU Invitational from November 15-17 rather than the Ohio State Invite that they attended last season, and they’ll have a two day tri-meet with Texas and Arizona at the beginning of February. This will replace the dual they had with the Longhorns last year in early November.

Other changes include having separate October clashes with South Carolina and Duke (rather than the one day tri-meet they had with Penn State and Duke last year), and the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, which will take place in November and follow the same format as the two College Challenge meets which have run the past two years.

As per usual their season will begin with the 4th annual Wolfpack Games next weekend, and they’ll also have some continuity in their schedule in the new year with duals against North Carolina, Virginia and the Carolina College Invitational. The ACC Championships follow at the beginning of March in Greensboro, and the season concludes at the NCAA Championships at the end of the month in Austin, Texas.

Question for NC STATE SPORTS INFORMATION or Swimswam, since the Wolfpack has a combined men’s and women’s swimming program, why would they only put the men in this article, when their schedules are identical? I understand that the men are top five in the country but the women are also top 20 and have been top 10 in the last year, it seems like they would be equally newsworthy.

So the question for swimswam is : did this come to you in the form of a press release from NC State? Or did you guys just choose to publish the men because they are a top-five program?

Good call since the NC state press release has both and even quotes on women’s diving. And the schedule is just an NC State schedule, not men’s or women’s.
