CINCINNATI - Xavier's men's and women's swimming teams will make the trek to Fairborn, Ohio, for a meeting with Wright State on Friday evening. The meet is slated for a 5 p.m. start time at the WSU Natatorium.

The two teams have been on a roll of late, with both of them taking second place at the Butler Invitational last weekend. Senior Chad Thompson was tabbed BIG EAST Men's Swimmer of the Week after picking up four wins between the Butler Invitational and a tri-meet with Oakland and Cleveland State.

This marks the final regular-season meet for the men's squad, while the women will face Ohio University next Friday, Feb. 7 at the O'Connor Sports Complex on XU's campus. Xavier will begin preparation for the BIG EAST Men's and Women's Swimming Championships set to be held in Gloucester, N.J., from Feb. 19-22.
