Spartan Shorts: Saturday's meet is the first of three home competitions for the Black and Gold. They also host Wilmington College of Ohio and Eureka Saturday, Jan. 14, and Anderson University and Olivet College of Michigan Saturday, Jan. 28 … MU is coming off strong efforts at a dual against fellow Ohio Athletic Conference member Baldwin-Wallace Nov. 5. The Spartans produced 17 season top times and scores including making history as sophomore Anjel Clemente (Rensselaer, Ind.) joined freshman Corbin Blank (Lowell, Ind.) in being the first competing divers for the men's program. Clemente won the six-dive, one-meter event and was second in the five-dive, one meter standings in route to OAC Swimmer of the Week honors. In the pool, freshman Triston Mahoney (Titusville, Fla.) added as record in the 200-yard freestyle to bolster the men's 73-point team performance, while junior Emily Clark (Peru, Ind.) topped the women's results, setting a new school standard in the 200-yard backstroke … "The season has gotten off well," Coach Mike Kroll said. "We've seen improvements from meet to meet across the board … this proves we're heading in the right direction. I tell our athletes every day that each meet is getting us ready for the conference championships. We're having fun and enjoying that process."

Ohio Wesleyan Trip: The Black and Gold pay a visit to Delaware, Ohio, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 19 and 20, for OWU's Corbiere-Marion Invitational.
