The women that are currently scheduled to attend the invite are juniors Aleah Hixenbaugh, Rhiannon Reese, Corri Sept and Elizabeth Ye, and freshmen Mary Eggers, Kennzie Hartmann, C.J. Hill, Kelly Moton, Elizabeth Shumaker and Emili Toppari.

The meet is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday, February 22nd and resume on Saturday, February 24th with preliminaries at 12:00 p.m. ET and finals at 6:00 p.m. ET.

The Spartan women are currently ranked 20th in Division III and the men are ranked 21st, according to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America poll.
