VMI swimming and diving will return to action Friday, when the Keydets travel to Lynchburg for the Liberty Duals at Liberty's new swimming facility. Action will get underway with a pre-event ceremony shortly before 6 p.m. Friday, and the first event is scheduled for 6:15. The meet then resumes Saturday at 11 a.m.
Who is Competing
This weekend's women's meet will feature a tri-meet between Liberty, George Mason and VMI, while the Keydets and Patriots will go head-to-head in the men's meet. In addition, divers from George Washington will also take part.
How to Follow
Fans can follow along with the action via both a video stream, provided by Liberty, and live results. The video stream is expected to focus on the women's swimming events and have limited coverage of the men's meet, and the video will only be available for Friday's events. Saturday's events will not be shown.
Fans should also note that the live results link is not yet available. It will be posted on this article when it is publicized.
The Opening of a Facility
Liberty has a 3-0 record in its new facility, but has yet to officially christen it. The building is located next to the Liberty Indoor Track Complex on Candlers Mountain Road.
Last Time Out
The VMI Keydet swimming and diving teams posted a handful of top five finishes, but were bested by UMBC and East Carolina in a tri-meet Saturday afternoon in Baltimore, Md. The VMI women (0-11) fell to UMBC 128-86 and to ECU by the same score, while the Keydet men (1-9) lost to both schools 146-116.
Next Time Out
This meet concludes VMI's regular season schedule and means that the Keydets will next be in action Feb. 15, when the America East Championships get underway in Worcester, Mass.
