As the 2018 NCAA season gets underway, most schools are having their first competitions this weekend. After seeing some SEC action last week, this week is all about the Big 12.

While only two of the Big 12 teams will be competing this weekend, we are still slated for some exciting racing.

According to the Horned Frog’s schedule, it looks like TCU will be splitting their rosters, with their distance swimmers attending the CSCAA Open Water National Championships in Lawrence, Kansas.

Those not swimming open water, will travel to Fort Worth to face University of Texas-Permian Basin, as is their typical first dual meet showdown. At last year’s version of the meet, TCU’s men and women both emerged victorious with the men winning in a score of 143-73 and the women scoring 132-94.

Kansas University will be hosting the CSCAA Open Water Nationals after winning the meet for the past two straight years.

KU will look to secure another team victory with sophomore Lauryn Parrish, junior Jenny Nusbaum and senior Haley Bishop leading the charge after placing in the top-10 last year.
