CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Two members of the men's swimming and diving team, Mike Mosca and Jonathan Marks, were recently named finalists for the Rhodes Scholarship. Mosca, a senior diver, and Marks, a senior who swims the butterfly and breaststroke, both took part in the grueling application and interview process for the prestigious scholarship.
"Mike and Jonathan are great representation of our team," said Kevin Tyrrell, The Ulen-Brooks Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Swimming and Diving. "We're proud of the both of them for becoming Rhodes finalists, an outstanding achievement both personally for them, as well as for our program and the University."
Mosca, an All-American native of Tenafly, New Jersey, is a history and science concentrator and is actively applying to medical school. Hailing from Brookfield, Wisconsin, Marks is concentrating in chemical and physical biology and is in the process of applying to MD/PhD programs in the midst of his senior year in the pool.
Mosca, Marks and the Crimson are 3-0 this season in dual meets and are gearing up to compete in the highly competitive Texas and UGA Invites on Dec. 4.
