Men’s and women’s swimming and diving announces their 2018-2019 schedule. The schedule will feature eight dual meets and the H20unds Invitational during the regular season, all teams which Marist faced last season.

The Red Foxes will kick things off with their annual Red & White intrasquad challenge on Saturday Oct. 6. This preseason scrimmage will be the final tune up before the season begins. Less than a week later, Marist will welcome Canisius to McCann Natatorium on Oct. 12 to start their regular season. The Red Foxes will travel to Fordham for a midweek showdown on Oct. 18 and close out the month of October with a home meet against men’s defending MAAC Champion Rider on October 27.

Marist’s lone November meet will be held at Fairfield on Nov. 17. Fairfield broke Marist women’s eight year MAAC championship streak to come out on top during last season’s championships. For the ninth consecutive year, the Red Foxes will compete in the H2ounds Invitational in Baltimore. They will face off against MAAC rivals Iona and Saint Peter’s as well as hosts Loyola. The men’s Evan Nilsson and Peter Gallino and Raislan Aiken were named swimmer of the meet and co-divers of the meet. On the women’s side, Sara Nestrowitz and Esabelle Gervasio were named swimmer and diver of the meet.

Following the annual winter training trip in Orlando, Florida over the break, the Red Foxes will host Binghamton for the first meet of 2019 on Thursday, Jan 10. Marist has a quick turn around and will travel to Boston College on Saturday Jan 12. The Red Foxes will compete in their last home meet on senior day against Southern Connecticut State on Jan. 19. They will close out the regular season at Bryant University on Jan. 26.

The 2019 MAAC Swimming and Diving Championship will be co-hosted by Canisius and Niagara from Feb. 13-16 at Erie Community College in Buffalo, New York. Both teams finished second last season. The men broke seven school records at MAAC champs. Between the men and women, the Red Foxes have won 30 MAAC titles since 1996.

Marist will compete in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships from Feb. 28 – Mar. 2. At last year’s meet, divers Peter Gallino and Esabelle Gervasio were named ECAC Divers of the Meet. The men finished in third place, their highest finish ever.

Divers who meet national qualifying standards will end the year at the NCAA Zone A Diving Championships from Mar. 4-6. The meet will be hosted by Navy.

Live results from all Marist regular season home meets as well as postseason competitions will be available for paid subscribers to the Meet Mobile app.
