NOTRE DAME, Ind. – After heading south for its annual winter training trip, the University of Notre Dame women’s swimming and diving team gets its spring semester underway this Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan, as the Irish meet Michigan and Northwestern in a double dual meet at Donald B. Canham Natatorium on the campus of the University of Michigan.
Diving action is set to begin at 11 a.m. ET before swimming gets underway at 12 p.m. ET. The meet can be followed through live results.
Notre Dame (4-5) will face stiff challenges from the No. 8 Wolverines (5-2, 4-0 Big Ten) and the Wildcats (4-3, 1-1 Big Ten), as it dives back into action following ventures to Miami (swimming) and Puerto Rico (diving) for its annual winter training trip.
The double dual meet is becoming somewhat of a tradition for the three programs, as the trio has met the previous four years between South Bend, Evanston, Illinois and Ann Arbor.
