The Youngstown State swimming and diving program plays host to Ohio on Saturday at the Beeghly Natatorium. The dual meet is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Admission is free.

The contest with the Bobcats is one of just two home meets for the Penguins this year under first-year Head Coach Ryan Purdy. The other home dual is not until February against Cleveland State. The YSU divers will take on Duquesne on Friday, Nov. 3.

The Penguins opened the season on Oct. 7 with a meet at Akron. Highlighting YSU's efforts against the Zips were Kolburn Jonsdottir, Viktoria Orosz, Natalie Laurence and Sydney Gonzalez. Jonsdottir was second in the 100-yard freestyle, Orosz was second in the 500 free, Laurence place second in the 200 backstroke while Gonzalez was second in the 400 IM.

YSU's two divers - Bethany Glick and McKenzie Stelter - alternated second-place finishes in the one-meter and three-meter diving events.

Saturday's dual against the Bobcats features two relays - 200 medley and 400 freestyle - both diving events and 12 swimming events.
