SETTING THE SCENE
The Mount St. Mary's University men's and women's swimming & diving teams continue action this Friday (Nov. 3) with a meet at Howard at 6 p.m. at the Burr Gym Pool.

ABOUT THE MOUNT
The women's squad looks to capture their fifth straight victory to open the campaign, which would mark the best start to a season in program history. They earned a pair of victories over VMI in the first two meets of the season, and followed with wins over Monmouth (146-116) and Saint Peter's (134-57) two weeks ago to move to 4-0 on the season.

The men's team sits at 2-3 on the year in just their second season of competition. The Mountaineers earned their first victory in program history, a 119-95 triumph over VMI in early October, and followed with another win over Monmouth, 134-128, the next weekend.

INSIDE THE MATCHUPS
The women's team is a perfect 8-0 all-time against Howard after defeating the Bison by a 169-91 margin a season ago. The men's team was topped by Howard in their matchup last season, 161-107.

NEXT UP
The Mountaineers head to the Franklin & Marshall Invitational spanning November 17-19 in Lancaster, Pa.
