HUNTINGTON - The Marshall swimming and diving team will look to rebound from two-consecutive dual meet losses Wednesday as it travels to Radford for a 6 p.m. meet.
Marshall (2-5) dropped a tough meet last weekend to instate rival West Virginia, but with 23 season best marks set in the loss, Marshall head coach Leonard Kraus is anxious to see what his squad can do in their midweek contest.
"We're looking to keep building on what we've done over the last few meets," Kraus said. "We're still working to get back to where we need to be. We got off to a slow start but hopefully we can come out and do what we need to do.
"I think our sprinters had a little breakthrough against WVU. It's nice to see that they get better when the competition gets better."
Kraus will also be looking for more good things from his diving squad, which had a breakthrough its own last weekend as junior Siobhan Schuurman set a new career-best in the three meter and picked up a win in the one-meter as well.
Radford comes into the meet with a record of 4-4 after splitting a three-way meet with VMI and Gardner-Webb.
The Herd will have its first home meet of the season Saturday against Vanderbilt at 2 p.m. in the Fitch Natatorium located inside the Cam Henderson Center.
