This is some info that Swim Swam posted a year or two ago about this meet..
The state of Ohio’s top high school swimming talent will get an early opportunity to showcase their talent this weekend at the Southwest Ohio Swimming and Diving Classic.
In some ways, the meet is “bigger” than the Ohio state championships in that the field of competition and the event lineup are expanded.
The Southwest Ohio Classic runs non-high school events like the 400 IM, 1650 free and 50s of the non-free strokes. In addition, the meet is not divided by class, so swimmers from Division I and Division II compete directly against each other.
The result is a huge turnout of athletes. The Dayton Daily News reports that in 2015, the meet housed 2,900 swimmers from more than 100 different schools. Because of the huge participation numbers, the meet divides up prelims between ten different facilities ranging from the Countryside YMCA to Miami University. All qualifiers come together for finals at the University of Cincinnatti (diving) and St. Xavier High School in the evenings.
The meet will take place on Saturday and Sunday, with prelims at 8 AM, according to Cincinnatti.com.
