ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio Swimming and Diving hits the road this week for its first tournament action of the season. The Bobcats will begin competition at the three-day 2012 George Mason Patriot Invitational on Thursday in Fairfax, Va.
The Bobcats will comprise one of ten teams participating at the competition, as Ohio will face off against student-athletes from American, George Washington, Howard, Richmond, Seton Hall, Shippensburg, UMBC, UNC-Wilmington, and host George Mason.
Ohio is coming off a non-conference dual meet loss to Ohio State (182-112) on Nov. 10. Despite finishing on the losing end of the meet, the Bobcats turned in a number of especially strong performances. Junior captain Laurin Williams (Shoreline, Wash.) won two events and the Bobcat divers won the `battle of the boards' against Ohio State, outscoring the Buckeyes 22-15 from the one and three-meter diving boards.
