Meet of the Week – October 31

Kalamazoo VS Hope

As the dual meet season gets into full swing for America’s oldest conference, we would like to welcome back our segment Meet of the Week. This week we’ll take a look at a meet between long time rivals Kalamazoo College and Hope College.

Last year in this dual meet match-up the The Flying Dutch just edged out the Lady Hornets in a very close meet and on the men’s side the Hornets won handedly. We would expect a close meet on both sides last year. The women’s team of Hope and Kalamazoo both return a ton of talent. They also both made additions to their rosters who could play big roles in this match-up. Same can be said about the freshmen class on the men’s side. Both teams have versatile swimmers so any number of line-ups could be expected.
