Swimming Heads South for Cavalier Invitational

PHILADELPHIA – This weekend the University of Pennsylvania men’s and women’s swimming teams will travel south to the University of Virginia for the Cavalier Invite which will take place on Friday and Saturday at the Aquatic and Fitness Center. Preliminaries and finals begin at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Due to inclement weather, Penn will be traveling Friday morning and will compete in the final three sessions.

The group traveling this weekend is the Red and Blue’s non-Ivy League Championships squads. Last year when the men and women competed in the Cavalier Invite, the men took first place out of the six schools competing, while the women placed second out of five teams.

The partial Quaker squads will be in action against select swimmers from Drexel, Duke, James Madison, Virginia, and William & Mary. Live results will be available and linked through VirginiaSports.com.
