PROVO, Utah – The BYU swim and dive team will host their annual blue and white meet Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Richards Building Pool.

Although this is only an intrasquad meet, it will be an opportunity for the coaches to see the team in a competitive environment and the athletes’ team spirit.

“We’re excited for our first meet of the year,” head coach John Brooks said. “It will be exciting to see our team spirit as they compete against each other.”

Last year the swim and dive teams completed their first season in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and both came away as conference champions. The teams hope to build on that success with a strong showing this weekend.

The blue and white meet will feature the entire swim and dive team and give fans an opportunity to see the newcomers on the team this year.
