Notre Dame will hold its first dual meet of the season when they welcome No. 18 Purdue to the Rolfs Aquatic Center today.

On Oct. 26, the Irish (2-0) opened up their dual meet schedule with a 191-107 win over Oakland. Junior All-American Frank Dyer led the Irish to a win in 200-yard medley relay while also claiming victories in the 50- and 200-yard freestyle events.

A day later, Notre Dame defeated Michigan State 178-120. Sophomore Cameron Miller won the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke races, while sophomore diver Nick Nemetz turned in a personal best in the 3-meter dive.

The Boilermakers (1-0) dominated Miami (Ohio) last weekend on their way to a 192-103 win over the RedHawks. Purdue won all 16 events at the meet, led by junior Danny Tucker’s three first-place finishes.

The dual meet is the first of three straight home matches for the Irish before they travel to the Hawkeye Invitational in Iowa City, Iowa on Nov. 30.

The meet with Purdue starts at 5 p.m. today.
