TUCSON, Ariz. (Dec. 31)-The New Mexico State swimming and diving team returns from a short holiday break to train in Tucson, Ariz., prior to a double dual meet with Pac-12 opponents Arizona and Oregon State, Friday, Jan. 4 at 2 p.m.
After time off for the holiday, the Aggies resumed practice in Las Cruces, Dec. 29, for three sessions prior to traveling to Tucson. The team started training in the Oro Valley, Dec. 31, and is spending the week preparing for the spring semester of action.
"It is will be an intense and fun week with the change of scenery," head coach Rick Pratt said. "Getting out of town relieves us of any distractions we might have. It will be a great time to work, bond and have fun. Friday's meet against one of the best teams in the nation will be another great experience."
The Aggies are competing against Arizona and Oregon State for the second consecutive season. Last year, the Wildcats finished fifth at the NCAA Championships.
