MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Two members of the West Virginia University men’s swimming and diving team travel to USA Swimming’s 2022 Phillips 66 U.S. National Championships, from July 26-30, in Irvine, California.

Senior David Snider and junior Justin Heimes will represent the Mountaineers at the five-day, long-course meters event held at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center. Snider is set to compete in the men’s 100-meter butterfly, while Heimes will compete in the 100-meter backstroke.

“It’s always great to have the Flying WV represented at USA Swimming Summer Nationals,” Mountaineer coach Vic Riggs said. “It’s been a couple years since we’ve been there. Having David and Justin attend is the next step in their careers. They’ve done an outstanding job this summer, and I look forward to seeing them compete at Nationals.”
