MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – To open the 2016-17 season, the West Virginia University swimming and diving team held its fourth annual Gold-Blue Intrasquad Meet on Saturday, October 1, at the WVU Natatorium.
For the second year in a row, the Gold team defeated the Blue squad in the 22-event intrasquad meet, winning by 65 points. The Gold team held on throughout the meet with a total of 231 points to the Blue team’s 166.
“It was great to see the team spirit and energy on the pool deck today,” said coach Vic Riggs. “We had some very solid swims that we can build on and use as we move forward into our season and some things that we noticed that we can start working on in practices.”
The Mountaineer divers participated in three synchronized diving events, pairing each individual in two’s based on their best forms.
WVU will officially open the season when the team travels to Huntington, to compete at the WV State Games from October 7-8.
