The NFL Girls Swimming Championship meet will be held over three days starting at 5 p.m. today (Oct. 23) at Niagara Falls High School.
Today features the preliminary races for each in-pool event. Each team is allowed four participants per race, which means each event will have around 30 athletes at the start. The top 12 finishers in the preliminary races advance to the final round on Thursday.
All diving competition will take place at 5 p.m. Wednesday and the racing finals will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday.
Final team scoring is counted toward the regular-season NFL standings. Whichever team finishes first of the eight teams would add 7-0 to its record, second adds 6-1 and so on.
