ATHENS, Ohio – The Ohio Swimming and Diving Team will look to capture its seventh consecutive Zippy Invitational over the weekend as it heads to the University of Akron for the three-day event. The Bobcats finished fifth at the 2005-06 installment of the competition and have claimed top honors every year since.

Ohio will be one of ten teams competing at the invitational. Bobcat swimmers and divers will be lining up against student-athletes from host Akron, Bloomsburg, Clarion, Illinois State, Indiana (Pa.), Niagara, St. Bonaventure, and Toledo.

Ohio is coming off a two-week break from competition which came after the team captured its first tournament title of the season at the George Mason Invitational on Nov. 17. The Bobcats finished 136.5 points ahead of Richmond to take the crown, finishing with 785.5 points overall.

Katey Brooks (North Royalton, Ohio) played a pivotal part in helping the team capture the invitational, earning first in four different events (200 and 400 Freestyle Relay, the 400 Medley Relay as well as the 800 Freestyle Relay). She also finished third and fourth in the 100 Free and 50 Free, respectively.

For her performance at the invitational, Brooks was named the Mid-American Conference swimmer of the week for the first time this season while being the first swimmer for Ohio to receive a weekly award in 2012-13.
