Swimming and Diving ACC/Big Ten Challenge set
GREENSBORO, N.C./ROSEMONT, Ill. – The Atlantic Coast Conference swimming and diving programs will square off against the Big Ten Conference in the inaugural ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the ACC and Big Ten announced Tuesday.
The short-course yards dual meet is slated for Nov. 10-11 at the Morgan J. Burke Aquatic Center on the campus of Purdue University.
Ticket and television broadcast information will be available in the near future.
In a similar format to the successful 2016 College Challenge (versus USA Swimming), a running score will be kept throughout the dual meet competition combining the points earned by both women and men. Team scoring will be used to determine a winner of the All-Star meet. Meet scoring will mirror NCAA dual meet parameters.
In the 2016 meet, Penn State was represented on the men’s side by Shane Ryan and on the women’s side by Casey Francis and Katelyn Sowinski. Ryan swam the NCAA’s fastest 100 backstroke of the season to that point and led the Big Ten to victory in the 400 freestyle relay.
Swimming students will be determined using a similar selection process.
