LEWISBURG, Pa. – For the eighth time since the facility opened in 2003, Bucknell’s Kinney Natatorium will serve as the host facility for the Patriot League Swimming & Diving Championships. The four-day event begins Wednesday and runs through Saturday. Prelims each day are slated for 10 a.m., while each night’s finals are scheduled for 6 p.m. The meet will kick off Wednesday at 2 p.m. with the women’s three-meter diving prelims.

A live video broadcast of the entire meet will be available via the Patriot League Network, while live results can be found on BucknellBison.com.

The Bison went 4-7, including 3-4 against Patriot League opponents, this season. They posted wins over Seton Hall, Lafayette, American, and Loyola. They earned two Patriot League Swimmer of the Week honors – Julie Byrne and Julianna Foss – and one Patriot League Diver of the Week award by Christine Kehrli.
