Kansas Travels to Iowa State for Two-Day Meet

Feb. 3, 2010


Kansas swimming and diving will travel to Ames, Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones in a two-day event, starting Friday at 6 p.m. The Jayhawks are 8-4 in dual meets, while the Cyclones are 8-3 in dual competition.

Kansas senior Meghan Proehl led KU in its last outing against South Dakota and Norther Iowa. The diver from San Diego, Calif., placed first on the one-meter and three-meter boards, and earned Big 12 Diver of the Week honors last Wednesday for her performance. Kansas won the duals 178-106 and 174-108, respectively.

Iowa State is coming off a tough loss against Nebraska, 177-123, winning seven-of-16 events. This will be ISU’s final home meet of the season, and the Cyclones will honor their senior class at the dual.

“Our two-day dual meet with Iowa State will be the most unique and competitive meet we have all year,” Kansas head coach Clark Campbell said. “It’s unique because we are swimming over two days and racing mostly non-standard distances. Iowa State is very experienced and very well coached. For us to be competitive, our younger swimmers are going to need to step up and make this weekend simply about racing at a very high level.”

After the Iowa State dual, Kansas will prepare for the Big 12 Championships in College Station, Texas. The four-day meet will begin Wednesday, Feb. 24.
