* University of Wyoming press release

LARAMIE -- The University of Wyoming swimming & diving team takes to the road for a pair of meets this week. The Cowgirls travel to Northern Colorado for a dual meet on Thursday, while both of Wyoming’s men’s and women’s teams will compete in a dual meet at Colorado Mesa on Saturday.

For the women, it’s two meets in three days. And when taking into account last week, it’ll mark four meets in eight days.

It’s a heavy workload, but it’s one that will help the Cowgirls down the road.

“It’s not something we do a lot, but it does simulate conference in a lot of ways,” head coach Dave Denniston said. “I think it will create some unique challenges, but this team is a capable of coming out victorious at both places.”

For the men, it’s the first dual meet of the season. It’s an opportunity for the Cowboys to lay the groundwork on a season full of potential and promise.

“Our men’s team is the most focused and hungry I have ever seen them,” Denniston said. “Practices are full of energy and intensity. The men are ready to race and see what they can do. I anticipate that my high expectations will be exceeded in ways I can’t predict.”

Northern Colorado and Wyoming squared off last season in Laramie, and it was a meet that came down to the wire. The Bears won by a final score of 151-148.

This season will afford the Cowgirls a chance at revenge. The meet begins at 4 p.m. inside Butler Hancock Swimming Pool.

The meet against Colorado Mesa is another edition of a meet swum a year ago. The Cowgirls downed the Mavericks 229-70, while the Cowboys won by a final tally of 183-117.

The competition begins at 1 p.m. inside El Pomar Natatorium.

Following the meet in Grand Junction, Wyoming returns home. The Cowboys and Cowgirls host Air Force in a dual on Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. at Laramie High School.
