COLLEGE STATION --- The Texas A&M men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will open the 2014 portions of their schedules when the Aggies host Southeastern Conference rival Georgia in a 12 noon dual meet at the Student Recreation Center on Friday.
For head women’s coach Steve Bultman’s team, it will be the first action since overpowering Rice at the Rec on Dec. 20, while head men’s coach Jay Holmes’ squad will be seeing its first action since the Art Adamson Invitational in late November.
