The Massachusetts men's and women's swimming and diving teams open their 2013-14 season against Boston University on Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Joseph R. Rogers, Jr. Pool on the UMass campus. The day begins with diving at 10:00 a.m., followed by a full meet at 1:00 p.m.

The Minutewomen are coming off an outstanding season a year ago that saw them set 21 of 23 school records en route to a second place finish at the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship - their highest podium spot in six years. The 2013-14 team has 24 returnees, including All-America diver Michaela Butler. The six-member freshman class consists of a diver and five swimmers and is headlined by high school All-America honoree Meriza Werenski of South Hadley, Mass.

On the men's side, the 14-time A-10 champion men's team returns 14 letterwinners, including five all-conference performers and 11 athletes who scored at the conference meet. The Minutemen also brought in a strong class of 14 newcomers - 10 swimmers and four divers.

The BU women sport a 2-0 record after sweeping a triangular meet against Army (154-146) and Vermont (204-96) last week in West Point, N.Y. The Terriers defeated the Minutewomen 177-118 a year ago in Boston. BU has won the last seven over UMass in dual meets.

BU's men's squad suffered a narrow 157-139 loss to Army last Friday. UMass fell to BU 182.5-116.5 at the Terriers' Competition Pool in the meeting 52 weeks ago.
