HOUSTON - A total of eleven regular season meets, including two on-campus at the Aquatics Center, highlight the new 2014-2015 schedule for the defending Conference USA champion Rice Owls swim team.
The Rice swimmers have won back-to-back, and three of the last four, C-USA titles. In the spring of 2014 the Owls also won the first-ever National Collegiate Classic, a meet featuring NCAA Division I provisional qualifiers that took on the nickname of the Swimming NIT.
The Owls open the 2014-2015 season at home on October 10 against Incarnate Word. The team competes against some of the best in the region and travels to face strong opponents all the way to the C-USA Championships in February.
Texas A&M, SMU, North Texas and Houston are just a few of the early-season dual meets. The competition focus then shifts to multi-team formats. Rice head coach Seth Huston, now starting his 13th season at the helm of the program, said a challenging schedule (that mixes some long-time rivals and new opponents) is by design.
"We look forward to this upcoming season," Coach Huston said. "We will be swimming several schools we have not competed against in recent years, including Missouri State, San Diego State and Nevada." The latter two teams were former rivals from Rice's days in the Western Athletic Conference.
"Our goal with this entire schedule," Huston added, "is to prepare us for conference and to qualify for postseason meets of the NCAA Championships and the National Collegiate Classic."
