CLEVELAND, Ohio - Day three of the 2008 Horizon League Swimming and Diving Championships will be contested at the University of Akron, due to a water main break at Busbey Natatorium.
Due to the change in venue, the time schedule has been adjusted to allow for travel times. All events are now timed finals, skipping preliminary rounds. Finals for all swimming events will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Friday evening at Akron's Okasek Natatorium.
Diving events have been moved to Saturday. The men's one-meter and women's three-meter finals will begin at 12:00 noon. Both finals will be contested simultaneously, with swimming finals to follow at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. All swimming events will follow the same order as previously outlined in the meet schedule.
The final day of the championship meet (Saturday, Feb. 23) will be held at either Akron or Cleveland State. The official ruling on tomorrow's site will be determined on Saturday morning, pending the status of the water main which is currently under repair.
