Sporting Event of the Week: DU vs. Wyoming in Denver Relays

Clay Meyers was named the Sun Belt Conference's male swimmer of the year for last season's accomplishments.

The University of Denver swimming and diving teams kick off their season at noon Oct. 15 at the El Pomar Natatorium in DU’s Ritchie Center when they host Wyoming at the Denver Relays.

The Pioneers closed last season on a high note, winning both the Sun Belt Conference (SBC) men’s and women’s championships.

Head coach Brian Schrader was named the SBC women’s coach of the year for the fourth time and diving coach Aaron D’Addario was the SBC men’s diving coach of the year.

Returning senior Clay Myers of Arvada, Colo. — last season’s conference male swimmer of the year — will be joined by last year’s 50 freestyle champion Jay Giddens of Carlsbad, Calif. and 100 backstroke champion Kyle Milberg of Littleton, Colo.

The women return junior Rachel Burns, the conference’s 200 freestyle champion last year, and senior captains Michelle Needham of Portland, Ore. and Sara Ladner of Lenexa, Kan.

Admission to all home swim meets is free.
