BYU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams travel to Denver on Friday to compete against Denver and New Mexico.

“It should be very competitive for both the men’s and women’s teams because of the meets we’ve had in the past,” BYU head coach John Brooks said. “We just got back from a great training trip so this will be a good way to see where we’re at.”

Last year the Cougars defeated DU in an exciting meet that came down to the final events of the night, the men’s and women’s 400 free relays. The swim team secured 12 combined wins, and both diving teams swept the boards in the competition to help lift the Cougars over the Pioneers.

The last time the women’s team competed against UNM was in 2011. The Cougars secured a double victory against the Lobos and TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.

The men’s team competes against DU, while the women’s team and both diving teams compete against DU and UNM.

The meet will begin at 2 p.m. MST with the diving events. Swimming events will follow beginning at 4 p.m. Check out the men’s home page for results following the meet.
