The UH swimming and diving
team heads to Indianapolis for the Conference USA championships this weekend.
The Cougars will compete against Texas
Christian, East Carolina, Saint Louis, Cincinnati and Louisville.
"It's great to be part of a conference,"
head coach Ginger Hurley said. "We're going to the fastest pool in the
nation to compete in
the first-ever C-USA championship."
Each swimmer is allowed the opportunity
to swim in only three events to earn points, so it is important to calculate
swimmer will be most valuable.
Since the old Southwest Conference was
dissolved, Houston has competed in various other tournaments, including
National Independent Conference championship.
The NIC tournament generally had 10 teams
involved, and with only six, the C-USA competition will be weaker than
Cincinnati will be a familiar foe for Houston.
The Bearcats have participated in the NIC championships with Houston.
