MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University swimming and diving teams will host its alumni this weekend.

“Over the past few weeks and months leading up to this alumni weekend, it has been great hearing from many alumni who could come and those who will be unable to attend,” said coach Vic Riggs.

The festivities for this weekend include the swim team’s practices on Friday from 3-5 p.m., and on Saturday from 6-9 a.m.

On, Friday evening, the Swimming and Diving Alumni Social will take place at Kegler’s Sports Bar.

Alumni will also be invited to the Varsity Club Saturday morning at 10 a.m., prior to the football game against Georgia State at noon.

“It is always exciting to hear the stories of the program's past and the wonderful experiences our alumni shared during their time as a Mountaineer,” said Riggs. “I'm looking forward to meeting some new alumni this weekend and revisiting with others.”

The teams start their season next month with the Gold-Blue intrasquad meet on Oct. 5, and the Mountaineer Swimming Celebration Dinner.
