Day One: 2013 West Virginia State Games
Day Two: 2013 West Virginia State Games
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Marshall swimming and diving team will travel to Morgantown, W.Va., to kick off competition for the 2013-14 season in the third annual West Virginia State Games.
The two-day meet features the seven state universities located in West Virginia. Action begins Friday afternoon and will continue with two sessions Saturday, with the first beginning at 9 a.m. and the final starting at 3 p.m.
HAVE YOU HERD?
All but one of the 2012-13 season record holders return for the Herd this year. Sophomore Danica Ross (Binghamton, N.Y.) held the top times in the 50, 100 and 200-yard freestyle events. Junior Kacey Preun (St. Andrews, Manitoba) led the Herd in four events last season, while fellow junior Kaley Gregory (Hurricane, W. Va.) will look to repeat as a top performer in the 1000-yard freestyle.
Marshall has five seniors competing this season, including Sarah Kay (Cape Town, South Africa) and Madison Lawhorn (Baltimore, Ohio), both of whom recorded top performances for the Herd last season.
