It seems that the SMU Men’s swimming and diving barely took a breath this winter break, but there will be no rest for the team as they host Texas A&M in a dual meet Jan. 29 at Perkins Natatorium.
In the 2008-09 season, SMU just barely out-touched A&M for a win (122-121) in College Station. This is the team’s second to last dual meet of the season. When looking at mutual components, both teams tend to have similar results. SMU is currently ranked No. 23 out of 25 teams and A&M is currently ranked No. 19. SMU was the only addition into the top 25 this season.
Following the dual meet, SMU will participate in the U.S. Diving National Championships Feb. 1-8 in Columbus, Ohio. The only SMU male to participate will be junior, Matthew Culbertson. In the middle of the Championship, SMU will host their final dual meet of the season against the number one team, University of Texas on Feb. 6.
The upcoming meet is sure to heat up the pool this Friday, as A&M heads to Dallas to take on the Mustangs to return the favor from last season.
