Last Time Out
Harvard's divers competed last week at the Wally Nakamoto Hawai'i Diving Invitational, as the swimmers were completing their annual training trip in St. Croix. Sophomore David Pfeifer had the best finish for the divers, coming away with a fourth-place showing in the three-meter dive with his score of 354.90. Pfeifer also finished ninth in the one-meter dive, one spot behind freshman Luke Martinez, Harvard's top finisher in eighth.

Saturday will be the first competition for the swimmers since competing at the Texas Invitational Dec. 2-5. In dual meets, the Crimson stand at 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Ivy League.

Scouting Brown

Scouting Penn
Penn visits Cambridge with a 6-1 dual record, including a 4-1 mark in the Ancient Eight. The Quakers hosted Yale and Dartmouth at Sheerr Pool last weekend, defeating both squads. Penn's lone blemish on its record was a 234-217 loss at Princeton Nov. 21.
