It will be a week of invitationals in the Southeastern Conference this week as many teams across the SEC will participate in bigger meets.

The biggest invitational this week is Texas A&M hosting its annual Art Adamson Invitational in College Station.

The Aggies have made this one of the biggest invitationals in the SEC each year and there should be some pretty fast swims at the meet.

Fellow SEC team LSU will compete at the Art Adamson Invitational, which is Wednesday-Friday.

The Aggies will also welcome Hawaii, SMU, Incarnate Word, Air Force and Boise State.

Sydney Pickrem leads the Aggies into the meet. She has been one of the top NCAA swimmers for three years and is poised for a strong senior season.

That is the biggest event hosted by an SEC team this week, though there will be a heavily SEC-represented meet on the East Coast this weekend.

Several SEC teams will head to the Georgia Tech invitational this weekend.

Florida, Alabama, Auburn and South Carolina are all slated to compete in Atlanta for the three-day meet that goes Thursday through Saturday.

Auburn is coming off of a loss to Tennessee last week.

Kentucky will head to the Ohio State invite this weekend and Missouri will host an invite from Thursday-Saturday.

Kentucky’s Asia Seidt is coming off of a strong performance in her last meet.

Seidt won four individual events, three of those with B-cut times, to help lead UK to wins over Missouri and No. 23 Arkansas two weeks ago. She earned the gold in the 200 back (1:55.89 – 11th in the nation), 200 IM (2:00.16 – 13th in the nation), 100 back (53.83 – 15th in the nation) and 200 fly (1:58.99 – 20th in the nation). Seidt was also a part of the winning 400 medley relay (3:37.83/52.80).

Vanderbilt will also head to an invitational at Houston.

Most of these teams had a week off from meets to prepare.
