CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A strong start to their respective seasons has MIT's men's and women's swimming and diving teams ranked in the top-10 in the latest Division III poll released by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America this week. The men's squad was ranked No. 4, while the women's team came in at No. 6 in the national rankings.
On the men's side, MIT has won both of its head-to-head matchups this season, wrapping up the fall portion of the schedule with an impressive outing at the MIT Winter Invitation where the Engineers won 15 events and saw junior Wyatt Ubellacker (Georgetown, Ky.) achieve an NCAA A cut in his victory in the 100 Fly.
It has been much the same for the women, who have started 3-0 in dual meets. The Engineers were also impressive at the MIT Winter Invitational in which it bested the other six teams in the field by over 700 points in the final standings. Sophomore Christy Rogers (Bend, Ore.) had a record breaking night at that meet for the Engineers, breaking Institute records in the 50 Free and 100 and 200 Backstrokes.
Both teams will be back in action after the first of the year, hosting Colby College in a dual meet on January 14 starting at 3:30 p.m.
