The University of Wyoming Cowboy swimming and diving team hosts Colorado School of Mines in a non-conference dual in Corbett Pool Saturday at noon. It will be the Cowboys' only dual meet in Corbett Pool this season. UW will honor five seniors before the dual against the Orediggers, as Jayce Calhoon, Jeff Frey, Ethan Griffel, Nick Rutecki and Derek Campbelleach will be honored.

After a week out of the pool, the Cowboys look to build off strong season openers at the DU Relays and Wyoming Diving Invite. UW won four-straight events and five overall at the DU Relays.
