Bulls Swim Teams Remain Ranked in Mid-Major Poll
BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo men's and women's swimming and diving teams remain listed in CollegeSwimming.com's second Mid-Major Division I Top 25 Rankings, released recently.
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 the Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules.
In the men's poll, the Bulls are ranked 10th with 230.2 points while the UB women are listed 17th with 233.92 points in the poll. Both teams were ranked ninth in the first poll of the season. Princeton (251.35) and San Jose State (256.61) lead the men's and women's rankings, respectively.
This is the second of four rankings during the season by CollegeSwimming.com. Other ranking dates include mid-November, prior to invitational meets, early-February, prior to the conference championship meets and a final ranking in early March.
The Bulls return to the water for meets at Niagara on January 13 and Binghamton on January 14.
