The Youngstown State swimming and diving team, under first-year coach Ryan Purdy, opens it season on Friday at Akron. The dual at Ocasek Natatorium begins at 5 p.m.
Orosz, Aranda and Jonsdottir have been mainstays in the lineup throughout their careers. Orosz had three top-seven finishes at the Horizon League Championships in 2017 and has nine in her career. During her career she has been solid in the backstroke and the distance freestyle for the Guins. Aranda has had eight top-seven finishes as a distance freestyle swimmer at the Horizon League meet during her Penguins' career. Jonsdottir has been one of the team's top finishers in sprint freestyle events. Shipp will be a key member for the Penguins in butterfly.
Glick and Stelter will lead the YSU divers. Glick and Stelter had their best seasons of their Penguins' career last season. Stelter placed fourth in both the one-meter and three-meter dives while Glick placed fifth in both the one-meter and three-meter diving events at the HL meet last year.
The Penguins are at home for the first time on Saturday, Oct. 21 against Ohio.
