Complete 2013-14 Schedule

DALLAS (SMU) - After a 24th place finish at the 2013 NCAA Championships, and a third place performance at the Conference USA Championships last season, the SMU women's swimming and diving team looks for success in its first season as a member of the American Athletic Conference.

The Mustangs have collected 15 conference titles, 54 individual national championships and have seen 113 student-athletes honored as All-America selections in their rich history.

The 2013-14 slate begins at the North Texas Relays in Mansfield, Texas, on Oct. 4, and the month concludes when SMU hosts the SMU Classic at the Perkins Natatorium Oct. 18-19. In 2012, the Mustangs finished sixth at the Classic with juniors Rachel Nicol and Nathalie Lindborg turning in third place performances in the 200-yard breaststroke and 100-yard freestyle, respectively.

A pair of dual meets is set for Nov. 1 and 2, with the Mustangs traveling to Houston, Texas, to take on Rice and Houston at their respective locations. SMU topped both teams a season ago. Also in November is the Texas A&M Invite Nov. 21-23 in College Station. 

The 2013 portion of the schedule closes out with an appearance at the USA Diving Nationals in Austin, Texas, Dec. 17-22 for those who qualify.

Jan. 3-5 features the Mustang divers at the Georgia Diving Invite in Athens, Ga., while the team returns to the pool on Jan. 11 for a dual meet with Texas A&M, a team that topped SMU in 2012. January also includes the Austin Arena Grand Prix (Jan. 17-19), and a dual meet at Perkins Natatorium with North Texas on Jan. 31.  

The American Championships from Feb. 19-22 is the only contest scheduled for the month and will take place in Louisville, Ky. Championships continue with the Zone Diving Qualification in Minneapolis, Minn., March 8-10, and the NCAA Championships are set for March 20-22, also in Minneapolis.

The 400-yard freestyle relay team of Nina Rangelova, Monika Babok, Isabella Arcila and Lindborg earned All-America honors at the 2013 NCAAs after a 10th place finish.

The 2013-14 season closes with an appearance at the Mesa Arena Grand Prix April 24-26 in Mesa, Ariz.
