TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State swimming and diving teams will be competing in two major invitationals from Nov. 22-24. The swimmers will be racing at the Georgia Tech Invite, while the divers will be competing at the House of Champions Invitational in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“We’re excited to see what we can do this weekend,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “We’ve had a great fall season and we’re ready to see it all come together and swim fast. We’ve won this meet before, but it will be tough since it’s just our swimmers competing, so we’ll have to be at our best.
“This will be our hardest test of the year so far,” FSU head diving coach John Proctor said. “Everyone looks pretty solid for the training we done, so I expect some good performances in this last meet before the holidays.”
