PROVO -- The BYU men's and women's swim and dive teams will be back in the Richards Building pool Friday afternoon as they take part in the annual inter-squad Blue and White Meet at 3 p.m.
“It will be a fun meet for the walk-ons to showcase their abilities and for the captains to have a chance to lead,” said BYU head coach Tim Powers. “We are looking forward to getting together to swim some competitive races.”
Captains for the 2009-10 season are John Kendrick, David Mason, Sara Jayne Christiansen Baldwin and Natasha Menezes. The captains will choose who will be swimming what events for their respective teams – the events will be the same as in high school with the longest event being the 500 free.
This is the first event of the season to prepare the team for the freshman and sophomore meet next week and the Pacific Invitational Oct. 16-17 in Stockton, Calif.
