Winter schedule starts this weekend

Three successive meet weekends get underway Saturday, Jan. 13, for Manchester University.

Meet details: Coach Mike Kroll's men's and women's teams take an eastern trek to Wilmington College for dual action … Events get underway at 1 p.m. at WC's Natatorium.

Spartan Shorts: It's the first time the Black and Gold squads have been in action since competing at Illinois Tech's Ted Eriksen Invitational early last month. The two teams combined for 12 top-five marks that day, part of a fall in which the two sides reset 17 records on the board at Strauss-Peabody Aquatic and Fitness Center … Continuing a fall review, the women's trio of senior Emily Clark (Peru, Ind.) and freshmen Shelby Kell (Charlottesville, Ind.) and Katie Blystone (Carmel, Ind.) led the record-breaking theme doing so in nine individual events and being part of the same in three relays. The men were topped by junior diver Anjel Clemente (Rensselaer, Ind.). He set new point bests in one-meter, three-dive and three-meter, six-dive competition … MU takes on fellow Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference member Anderson University and Olivet College from the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association in a tri-meet Saturday, Jan. 20. AU's Bennett Natatorium is the venue.
