Men's Swimming and Diving Moves to No. 2 in Mid-Major Rankings

The Crimson moved up two places to No. 2 in the Mid-Major Rankings (OAC).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's swimming and diving team has been ranked No. 2 in the latest Mid-Major Rankings.

The Crimson will close out the dual meet portion of its schedule this weekend with a trip to conference foe Penn on Saturday, Feb. 11. Harvard is currently 5-3 overall and 4-1 in the Ivy League, good for second place in the conference standings. The team needs a victory over the Quakers and a Princeton loss at Columbia on Friday to earn a share of its eighth Ivy League dual meet title under Tim Murphy, the Ulen-Brooks Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Swimming and Diving.

Harvard was ranked fourth in the last mid-major rankings after falling from the top position. Now in its 10th year, the Mid-Major Rankings serve to provide an objective point system to compare teams' relative strength in a traditional dual meet lineup. The ranking is available to those institutions that a) are not members of a BCS conference or Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules.
