The Youngstown State swimming and diving team returns to the action on Friday and Saturday at the Beeghly Center Natatorium. The Penguins play host to Saint Francis (Pa.) on Friday and IUPUI on Saturday.

The dual meet against the Red Flash is set to begin at 6 p.m. while the contest against the Jaguars on Saturday will start at 1 p.m.

YSU has been off from competition since the end of November, but the squad has stayed active spending time in Puerto Rico on their annual mid-season training trip earlier this month.

The Penguins have won two straight home meets against Saint Francis, including a 158-125 win in 2015. Last year in Loretto, Pa., the Guins dropped a 148-110 contest. 

YSU lost a dual at IUPUI last year by a 168-129 margin. This is just the second meeting between the programs and first at the Beeghly Natatorium.

At the Magnus Cup in late November, Viktoria Orosz was second in the 200-yard freestyle, Madison Aranda finished second in the 500 freestyle and senior diver Bec Stafford took first in both the one and three-meter events.
