Swimming: WVU Hosts Louisville in BIG EAST Opener

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The West Virginia University men's and women's swimming and diving teams host BIG EAST foe Louisville on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 11 a.m. at the WVU Natatorium.

West Virginia was forced to postpone its meet last weekend against Marshall due to technical difficulties with the pool.

The men's team was recently ranked 29th by the College Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) in dual meet rankings.

Against Penn State on Oct. 14, both the men and women were defeated, losing 165.5-67.5 and 148-93, respectively. Senior Chris Hagedorn took first place in the 50 free, sophomore Pablo Marmolejo finished first in the 200 fly and sophomore Nick Delic won the 100 free. In women's action, freshman Taylor Stallings finished second in the 200 back, while freshmen Rachel Fedyk, Lindsey Largo and Meghan Fiene all finished second in the 50 free, 500 free and 200 breast, respectively.

Last season, the men's swimming team downed Louisville 149-88 and the women's swimming team fell 122-115.
