Wisconsin heads into difficult battle against Trojans of USC

Immediately after a nine-day training trip to Hawaii that was equal parts relaxation and hard work, the unranked Wisconsin swim team is heading to the University of Southern California for a dual meet with the No. 7/No.9 Trojans on Monday to start the second half of their season. Last year, the Trojans threw everything but the kitchen sink at head coach Whitney Hite and his team, and with a reloaded USC squad that includes multiple US National teamers and international Olympians, the Badgers are expecting to have their hands full. USC is a team that’s rife with star power, but Wisconsin sophomore Beata Nelson says going head-to-head with the Trojans’ big names is a challenge the Badgers are up for. “Our expectation is to go out and compete with them,” Nelson said.
