The Stanford men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams got a rare chance to compete together on Friday, with both teams taking on the University of Wisconsin.

On Friday afternoon, the Avery Aquatic Center will come alive for Stanford men’s swimming and diving’s first dual meet of the season. The Cardinal will face No. 25 Wisconsin as the Badgers set out on a two-meet Pac-12 road trip.
Stanford men’s swimming and diving was among the top teams in the nation last season, taking third at the NCAA championships. This year, with a new coaching staff, the Cardinal will look to maintain its status as an elite program and build on last season’s successes.
