PROVO -- After finishing first and second in the Pacific Invitational last week the BYU swim and dive team will be back at the Richards Building pool at 6 p.m. to have some fun in its annual Alumni meet in conjunction with Homecoming Week.

“The meet should be a lot of fun,” said BYU head coach Tim Powers. “We are going to have a lot of our All-Americans back and other great swimmers. Each year this meet in growing in popularity and so we anticipate having a good turnout.”

The meet will be Alumni-friendly with shorter events, including 50s of each stroke, 100 IM and the 100, 200 and 500 freestyle events for those wishing to do a little longer event.

“We make the events alumni-friendly because we realize they have jobs and they’re not training all the time,” Powers said. “We are going to do short events to make sure they are willing to participate.”

Alumni are encouraged to bring their spouses and children along to join in the festivities of the evening.

The event is free and open to the public.
