The Hendrix College men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will be hosting a pair of meets at Bob Courtway Pool on Friday and Saturday.
The 45th annual Hendrix Classic will begin at 2:30 p.m. Friday with diving with the swim events to start at 7 p.m. Saturday’s 50th annual Hendrix Relays will commence diving at 9:30 a.m. and swimming at noon.

The Warriors will be without longtime head coach Jim Kelly for the season. Kelly, who has coached Hendrix for 30 seasons, has taken a leave of absence due to medical reasons. Fourth-year assistant Alyson Hannan has been named interim head coach for the season and former Warrior standout Brett Carr (2006-10) will help as a recruiting coordinator.
