OXFORD, Ohio – Retiring Miami University swimming and diving coach Dave Jennings has announced the RedHawks’ 2013-14 schedule. The challenging season consists of eight home meets and six road competitions, as well as the annual Mid-American Conference Championships.
The season opens with the team’s annual Red vs. White Intrasquad/Alumni Meet on Sep. 21.
The RedHawks will kick off the regular season with back-to-back meets against Purdue and Xavier on Oct. 18 and 19, respectively. Miami will then have its first away meet at Akron on Oct. 26.
November features another home meet against Bowling Green on Nov. 1, followed by an away meet at Ball State on Nov. 8.
After Thanksgiving break and continual training, the team comes back in December to host its annual Miami Invitational Meet, Dec. 5-7. Considered to be the team’s most competitive meets prior to the conference championships, this coed meet typically exhibits fast swimming and high diving scores.
Cutting their winter break short, the RedHawks will participate in their annual training trip down in Boca Raton, Fla. To keep their race and speed work fresh, they will be competing against James Madison on Jan. 3.
After their training trip, the RedHawks will return to campus early to host a coed meet against Cincinnati. As the month of January comes to an end, Miami will finish up with two road meets, at Evansville (Jan. 18) and at Buffalo (Jan. 25).
In February, Miami will swim against Eastern Michigan (Feb. 1), followed by its last dual meet of the season a week later against Ohio (Feb. 8) in Athens.
Miami will defend its Mid-American Conference title at the Spire Complex in Geneva, Ohio, Feb. 27- March 1. Unlike previous years, the meet will be held at a complex that is not home to any team in the Mid-American Conference.
The Ohio Senior State Swimming Championships, hosted at Miami, are also in session the same weekend as the MACs.
