CINCINNATI - Xavier's men's and women's swimming teams will make the trek up I-71 to participate in the second-annual Magnus Cup hosted by Cleveland State at the Robert F. Busbey Natatorium in Cleveland, Ohio.

The meet will be held from Friday, Nov. 22 to Sunday, Nov. 24 and will feature Duquesne (women), St. Francis Pa. (women), Buffalo, Youngstown State (women), Ashland and host Cleveland State.

The Musketeers swam well in last season's event, with the men placing second and the women third. XU enters the meet swimming very well, with the women's squad sweeping a pair of dual meets against Tiffin and Butler last weekend and the men besting Tiffin.

Freshman Nick Strader was tabbed the BIG EAST Male Swimmer of the Week for his performance over the early portion of the season. Strader has been on a roll in the early going this season.
