Notre Dame is 3-2 in dual meets this season with Ohio State carrying a 3-0 record and a national ranking of 11th.

“Ohio State may be the fastest team to visit Notre Dame this season,” Irish head coach Tim Welsh said. “They swim very well in dual meets, and we are expecting this to be one of our toughest this season. Hopefully this will bring out fast swims on our end as well.”
