Purple-Gold Swimming Intrasquad Set for Saturday

BATON ROUGE — The LSU swimming and diving team’s annual Purple-Gold Intrasquad meet originally scheduled for Friday has been moved to Saturday and will begin noon at the LSU Natatorium.

The 14th-annual event will feature 25 events, including both the 1 and 3-meter diving competition as well as the 1000-yard freestyle. The Gold team’s captains are Laura Jo Leininger and Kyle VanArsdall and Chris Stanczyk is the captain for the Purple team.

The Purple team defeated the Gold team last season, 233-210 in last year’s meet. The Auburn meet has been rescheduled for Fri. Oct. 25 and will be conducted as a “telephone meet,” meaning Auburn will swim their events at their pool and LSU will swim at the LSU Natatorium, then the results will be compared and then scored as a regular meet.
