“This first road trip of the season will be a big one for us,” Irish head coach Tim Welsh said. “Competing against Pittsburgh always brings out the best competitive spirits in both teams. It’s college swimming at its best.”

Dating back to 2009, Notre Dame has won 19 of 24 individual swimming events during dual meet action versus Pittsburgh.

The Irish are 8-7 all-time against Pittsburgh (7-3 under Welsh) while winning each of the last seven matchups with the Panthers.
