Duke’s Ben Hwang will look to beat his current 50-yard personal record of 20.03 this weekend.

The Blue Devils will return to Taishoff Aquatic Pavillion this Saturday for their second home meet of the season.

They will compete against N.C. State and Miami’s women beginning at 11a.m. Duke has already faced off against N.C. State previously in the season at the All-North Carolina Invitational in Greensboro, N.C., where N.C. State took first on both the men’s and women’s sides.

Duke will hope to continue its success in the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke, with junior Christine Wixted still undefeated this season in both. The men and women dominated both events last week at home against Florida State, UNC Wilmington and Virginia Tech.

Senior Ben Hwang will also look to beat his current 50 freestyle personal record of 20.03 to secure the title of No. 1 sprinter in the nation. Although there were rumors that Olympic medalist divers Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory would compete this weekend, they will not return to official competition until later in the season.
