What to Know
- Harvard returns to action for the first time since sweeping Brown and Penn back on Jan. 12, and for the last time at home this season. The H-Y-P meet will feature the top three teams in the Ivy League with Harvard (5-0) and Yale (5-0) sporting unblemished conference records, and Princeton sitting at 4-1.
- The Crimson (6-1 overall), which won the Ivy League championship a year ago, is in a position to go through the conference campaign unbeaten for the first time since 2014-15, when it went 6-0-1. The last time Harvard went undefeated was 2012-13, when the program finished with an Ivy League record of 7-0.
- Harvard is 27-15 all-time vs. Yale (8-0), but has been on the short end of the last three meetings. Despite the skid, the Crimson has won 13 of the last 16 meets against the Bulldogs.
- The Crimson trails Princeton (8-2) in the all-time series, 13-25-1, but has split the last two get-togethers. Since 2011-12, however, Harvard owns a 4-2-1 record vs. the Tigers.
- Harvard, which is undefeated in three tries at Blodgett Pool this season, was honored last week by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for its efforts in the classroom. The Crimson earned the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team honor after it posted its best fall semester GPA (3.55) in nine years of recorded data.
- Fans are encouraged to "Take a Break from the Winter' on Friday night at 6 p.m. Those in attendance will receive free sunglasses and leis for Hawaiian Night at Blodgett Pool.
