Last weekend Omaha’s swimming and diving team preformed admirably on Friday against Northern Iowa picking up a big win before Illinois State beat them in Normal on Saturday. This weekend Omaha will be in the Grinnell Invitational in Grinnell, Iowa.

There will be eleven schools competing in the invitational. Last year Omaha finished 2nd to Gustavus Adolphus and will look to improve on that this year.
The event schedule is available online. There will be 10 events each day, seven preliminaries in the morning starting at 9 am followed by one final. Then diving at approximately 1 pm, then the evening session at 5:30pm which will have eight finals.

I’ve used results from previous meets this year to try and project things and give us an idea of what to expect. Here are the schools and what meet I used to project them:

  • Omaha – Division 1 – Mutual of Omaha Invite
  • Nebraska-Kearney – Division 2 – Mutual of Omaha Invite
  • Augustana College – Division 3 – Pioneer Classic
  • Coe College – Division 3 – Pioneer Classic
  • Grinnell College – Division 3 – Pioneer Classic
  • Gustavus Adolphus – Division 3 – Jean Freeman Invitational
  • Luther College – Division 3 – St. Thomas Invitational
  • Macalester College – Division 3 – St. Thomas Invitational
  • Simpson College – Division 3 – Mutual of Omaha Invite
  • St. Catherine – Division 3 – St. Thomas Invitational
  • College of Saint Mary – NAIA – Mutual of Omaha Invite

    For each event you’ll find the following information:
    Event Name – 1st/2nd/3rd from last year – Omaha School Record
    Top 5 times from my research
    All of Omaha’s times from the Mutual of Omaha Invite
    Projected scores for Gustavus and Omaha. They are likely go 1-2 so we won’t worry about the others really.
    If Omaha had a top 5 swimmer last year in the event
