BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Action returns to the Panther Aquatic Center for the first time in 2016 on Monday as Florida Tech welcomes Oklahoma Baptist to the Space Coast.

It will be the final non-conference meet of the season for the Panthers. FIT will close out the regular season with home meets against Sunshine State Conference foes Saint Leo, Lynn, Tampa and Rollins in preparation for February’s SSC Championship.

The Panther men will be in action for the first time since hosting the Panther Invitational in late November. The FIT women’s team last competed against Georgia Southern on Dec. 17.

The Bison will end a long layoff with their trip to the Sunshine State. The NAIA members concluded 2015 competition Nov. 20-21 at the Eat Turkey Meet in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Full meet results and a recap of the day’s action will be posted to at the conclusion of competition.
