Among the highlights of this week’s NCAA action is a two-day dual between Virginia and Cal, where the Cavaliers will once again race some off-distance events like they did last week against Georgetown.

After a more traditional opening day of competition on Friday, UVA and Cal will race the following events at Berkeley:

Mixed 400 Medley Relay
300 Freestyle
50 Back Skins
300 IM
50 Free Skins
300 Freestyle
50 Fly Skins
300 IM
50 Breast Skins
Mixed 400 Free Relay

Notes:

The 300 free and 300 IMs will be done as an add-up, so each swimmer will do both 300s, and the best add-up for the 600 wins.
The skins will follow the same format as the ISL: eight swimmers becomes four, four swimmers becomes two. This will be done with about 1-2 min between, with the women’s heat of eight followed by the men’s heat of eight, then the women’s heat of four, etc. The  event will take 6-9 minutes total.
Teams will enter four swimmers in each event maximum.

Other noteworthy duals on the schedule include NC State taking on UNC on Wednesday and then battling Tennessee on Friday and Saturday, plus another in-state battle between Texas and Texas A&M.
