The Arizona swim and dive teams couldn't have asked for a better start to their 2005-06 season, hosting Wisconsin and Penn State today at 2 p.m. at Hillenbrand Aquatic Center.

While the Badger men and women are both 3-0 this season, the Wildcats have dominated dual meets between the teams, holding a combined 7-1 all-time record.

In their first action since March's NCAA Championships, both Arizona teams will face off against Wisconsin, while only the women will meet the Nittany Lions (3-0, 1-0 Big Ten Conference).

"It's a good opportunity to get in there and get to racing, to see where we are at," said senior Marshi Smith.

Arizona swimming head coach Frank Busch said that both Wisconsin and Penn State have strong women's teams.

"It's the first meet. We will see what happens," he said. "We will see where we are and see how the freshmen respond. I think it's a good test for us."
