Meet with Lehigh Cancelled, Senior Day Still On
Feb. 5, 2011
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Penn State swimming & diving teams will not compete against Lehigh today due to inclement weather involving the Mountain Hawks' travel to Happy Valley. Penn State will still hold a Senior Day ceremony for both teams beginning at 12:30 p.m. followed by an exhibition intrasquad meet.
Early Saturday morning, the Lehigh swimming & diving team's bus experiences an accident en route to University Park, getting trapped in a ditch. There were no injuries sustained and despite efforts to continue with the dual meet, the coaching staffs of both teams decided to cancel the meet. Last year, on this very same weekend against Lehigh, Penn State was forced to cancel its final dual meet of the year when a blizzard engulfed the region.
Penn State's Senior Day ceremony is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. at McCoy Natatorium. Following the ceremony, both teams will compete in an intrasquad event. Entry is free to all fans.
