Kansas Looks Forward to Kenyon Invitational
Nov. 20, 2006
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Jayhawk swimming and diving team raced their way to a second-place finish in the women’s division at the Terrapin Cup Invitational Saturday evening in College Park, Md. Kansas finished with 609 points behind first-place West-Virginia University (641.50).
Head coach Clark Campbell was impressed with the way Kansas performed at the Terrapin Cup in preparation for the upcoming Kenyon Invitational in Gambier, Ohio.
“We were really happy with the way everyone raced at the Terrapin Cup,” Campbell said. “It was one of the largest college meets I’ve been to as a coach with 12 men’s teams and 15 women’s teams. There were over 600 athletes from teams all over the map and we represented Kansas well at such a large-scale college meet. We raced well in terms of where we are at this point in the season because we will peak in February.”
The second-place victory will give the Jayhawks the momentum they need to compete at the Kenyon Invite in Ohio, where only a select group of swimmers and divers will represent Kansas.
“We will use the Kenyon Invite to set us up for Nationals,” Campbell said. “We will have a select team of 12 athletes who may make national times at the Kenyon to prepare us for fall 2007 and the USA National Short Course Championships.”
Kansas will hit the road for Gambier, Ohio in two weeks to race in the three-day invitational, which will feature a championship meet format similar to the Terrapin Cup. The Kenyon Invitational will kick off Nov. 30 and continue through Dec. 2.
