Wisconsin swimming head coach Whitney Hite is taking his athletes on the road for the majority of the 2015-2016 college dual meet season, with only two home meets in Madison on the calendar.

Wisconsin will compete in just seven dual meets, down from 11 last season. The first three will be against Big Ten Rivals Minnesota, Indiana and Northwestern, with the season kicking off with home meet against the Golden Gophers on October 16.

After the Texas Invite in December, Wisconsin will take on three of the top teams in the country. They’ll start 2016 with a January 12 meet against Southern California, then head to the southeastern part of the country for a weekend of racing with Auburn on January 29 and Georgia on January 30.

The team’s final dual meet of the season will be at home with a February 5 meet against Green Bay.

Wisconsin was well-represented at last season’s NCAAs, where Ivy Martin was second in the 50 free and Drew teDuits was sixth in the 200 back. Hite served as assistant coach for Team USA at the world championships, where Martin competed in the 50 freestyle. Martin and teDuits completed their collegiate eligibility this past March.
