GRAND FORKS, N.D.-- First-year head coach Chris Maiello has announced his captains for the upcoming season. Camille Merwin and Morgan Lynch are the women's captains while Rick Eberle and Dan Jacobson will lead the men's group.

"We are very fortunate to have these outstanding young men and women serve as our team captains this season," Maiello said. "These four individuals have provided vital leadership for our program in a time of transition. I am excited to watch them grow and reach their athletic, academic and professional goals. They will continue to provide leadership and set the example for our program. I have great faith that they will help our program in more ways than just in the competition pool."

Lynch is the UND record holder in three different events (500, 1000 and 1650 free), setting all three at the 2012 WAC Championships. Merwin ranks fourth all-time at UND in the 100 breaststroke, a mark she set at the Conference USA meet in 2011. Her three best efforts last season all came at the WAC meet (100 breast, 100 fly, 200 IM).

Eberle became the first UND male diver to qualify for the NCAA Division I Zone diving meet last season. He is the school record holder in every diving event. Jacobson's name appears in the UND top 10 in four different events (50 back, 100 back, 200 back, 50 fly).

The UND men will join the women in the Western Athletic Conference this season after the league reinstated the sport for the 2013-14 campaign. The WAC Championships are held February 26th through March 1.

UND will begin competition this week when its hosts an intrasquad scrimmage at Hyslop Pool Friday at 4:00 p.m. The season officially gets underway Oct. 12 when North Dakota hosts South Dakota State at 1:00 p.m.
