PROVO -- THe BYU swim team hosts a double-meet weekend on Friday and Saturday with the women's team competing first against Arkansas, then the entire team will suit up to take on Seattle University.

"Arkansas will be the best test we will have in this pool so far,"BYU head coach Tim Powers said. "It will be a tough meet for the women, but even more tough to come back Saturday and face Seattle.

"Seattle will give us a challenge, but we are excited and confident that we will do really well. We're especially excited to be back in our home pool after traveling for the past few weeks."

The last time the Cougars competed was in Long Beach for the Toshiba Classic where the team was able to gain more experience in time trials competition.

After the meets this weekend, the team will be traveling back to California to train through Christmas break. The team will be scrimmaging against UC San Diego while holding practices in their pool.
