Emory & Henry Women’s Swimming Primed For The 2017 ODAC Championships This Weekend

EMORY, Va. - The Emory & Henry College Women's Swimming Team has its sights set on yet another stellar weekend at the 2017 Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championship, held at the Greensboro Aquatics Center. The three-day, 18-event meet will run from Friday to Sunday with preliminary races in the morning and finals in the evening.

Emory & Henry will place swimmers near the top of every race, but with only 10 swimmers competing this weekend, depth will play a large factor in the composite team score at the end of the meet. The championship format allows for 18 swimmers to compete in three individual events and four relays.
