WASHINGTON, D.C. – A return to competition following a holiday layoff and a training trip meets Senior Day ceremonies on Saturday when American University plays host to crosstown rivals Georgetown and George Washington in a swimming and diving triangular at the Reeves Aquatic Center.
Diving events will begin at 9 a.m. at American, with the swimming events set to begin at 1 p.m. The five seniors that comprise the Eagles' Class of 2018 will be honored before the swimming events.
American is back in competition for the first time since sending student-athletes to the ECAC Winter Championships in early December.
The Eagles returned from a week-long training trip to Sarasota, Fla., an excursion designed to kick-start their preparation for the four-week stretch before the Patriot League Championships.
American has also designed this event as a Very Important Professors Game, with Eagle student-athletes inviting faculty members to attend the meet.
Admission to all AU swimming and diving meets is free.
