Valparaiso’s swimming and diving teams will be home for five dual meets this season as head coach Howard Hunte has released the 2010-2011 men’s and women’s swimming and diving schedule. The Crusaders will be home at the Athletics-Recreation Center pool twice in October and three times in January.
The season opens on October 3 in Indianapolis, Ind. as the Crusaders swim against Butler, Saint Louis, Evansville, and IUPUI. A week later, Valpo heads to a pair of relay invitationals, one hosted by Notre Dame and another at Ball State.
The home slate opens October 16 with a dual meet against Horizon League foe Milwaukee before Cleveland State visits the ARC pool six days later. The Purdue Invitational and a dual meet at Wright State will prepare the Crusaders for the Coers Invitational hosted by Ball State just before Thanksgiving. The first half of the schedule concludes December 2-4 at the Calvin Invitational.
Returning from winter break, Valpo will host Green Bay on January 14 and UIC on January 22, sandwiched around a meet at IUPUI with the Jaguars and Saint Louis. The Brown and Gold head back to Butler on January 23 for a six team meet before hosting IUPUI on January 29 in the Senior Meet.
The dual meet portion of the schedule concludes February 5 at Western Illinois with the Leathernecks and Monmouth before heading to Cleveland, Ohio for the Horizon League Championships February 23-26.
