Home and away duals with in-state rival South Dakota State and a home opener against Minnesota State highlight the 2014-15 swimming and diving schedule released by head coach Jason Mahowald.

 

The men’s and women’s programs will look to improve upon their fifth- and fourth-place finishes, respectively, from a year ago. The women return All-Summit League performers Greysen Hertting in the dives and Sam Schutt in the 200-yard freestyle.

 

South Dakota will begin its season at home against Minnesota State on the Friday of Dakota Days, Oct. 10. The teams will spend the rest of October on the road to North Dakota (Oct. 17-18), Iowa State (Oct. 24) and Northern Iowa (Oct. 25).

 

The Coyotes face off in a dual against Omaha at home on Nov. 6 before traveling to Brookings on Nov. 7 to dual against SDSU. They will also dual St. Cloud State in St. Cloud, Minn., on Nov. 21.

 

Two tournaments mark the end of 2014 with the Border Battle in Stevens Point, Wis., on Nov. 14-15 and the Rochester Invite in Rochester, Minn., on Dec. 5-7.

 

After returning from a training trip to Puerto Rico, the Coyotes will travel to Macomb, Ill., to face league members Western Illinois (Jan. 16) and Eastern Illinois (Jan. 17).

 

South Dakota will return to the DakotaDome on Jan. 23 with a dual against South Dakota State, followed by a dual against North Dakota the next day. A trip to Minneapolis for the Minnesota Challenge on Feb. 6-7 will end the regular season for the programs.

 

The Summit League Championships will be held Feb. 18-21 in Indianapolis, Ind. Top performances could give USD a chance to send athletes to the NCAA Zone Diving Championships (March 9-11), Women’s NCAA Championships (March 19-21) and Men’s NCAA Championships (March 26-28).
