The Florida Atlantic University men's and women's swimming and diving teams face a big challenge this week when they head to the University of Florida. The Gators were ranked third and first in the nation before facing Georgia this past weekend.

The UF men's team defeated Georgia while the women fell to the no. 3 Bulldogs. The men's team has returning swimmers with 22 All-America awards.

The women's team has posted 57 NCAA Provisional qualifying times and one automatic time by nine Gator swimmers.

The meet is scheduled for Friday at 5 pm. On Saturday the team will face Indian River Community College in Fort Pierce at 1 pm.

The meet will be the season opener for the men's team. Hurricane Wilma cancelled two meets. The women's team is 2-0 after defeating the University of Miami and Florida International earlier this year.
