Boca Raton, Florida - An active week of two-a-day practices concludes for the Miami University women's swimming team Wednesday (Jan. 4) when it faces teams from James Madison and Keene State in a non-scoring meet at Saint Andrews Pool. The first event begins at 8:30 a.m.
Coach Dave Jenningssquad, currently ranked third among America's mid-major schools, uses the 10-day trip to Palm Beach County for reasons other than just conditioning and tuning up his team for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.
"It's always a great training trip and a time for our team to bond," said Jennings. "The upperclassmen get to know the freshmen and there's a better connection between the girls. We've got a solid team and if we can improve our times, we might be able to move up a notch or two at the MAC meet."
Coach Jack Fabian's Keene State Owls are ranked among the nation's best Division III teams, while Coach Samantha Smith's JMUDukes are 9-2 in dual meet competition.
The 3-2 RedHawks, champions of their own Miami Invitational in December, host Cincinnati in Oxford on Jan. 13.
