This weekend from 9 a.m. on Friday until almost 6 p.m. on Sunday, the Norris Aquatic Center was filled with swimmers from around the country. Competing teams included Ohio University, Michigan State University, Fresno State University, Grand Canyon University, Illinois State University, Saint Louis, Truman State University, University of Illinois - Chicago and, of course, our very own Northwestern Wildcats.

Both Northwestern’s men's and women's teams took first place. The women scored 1190 points, and were followed by Michigan State and Ohio University. The men scored 890 points, followed by Michigan State and Grand Canyon.

If you want to come see the Wildcats in action, they have one more home meet this year; it is against Iowa on January 20.
