Men’s Swim & Dive Ranked 21st In National Pre-Season Top 25 Poll And Seventh In Regional Ranking

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Oct. 17, 2019) – On Wednesday night, the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced the CSCAA / TYR Top 25 Division III Pre-Season Poll and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy came in at 21st in the nation in the rankings. Additionally, the Regional Preseason Rankings were released, and the Mariners ranked seventh in the Northeast North Region. 

USMMA finished the 2018-19 season with a 15th-place showing at the NCAA National Championship Meet back in March. The Mariners tied the Academy-high with six All-Americans over the four-day meet, and they brought back a program-record 15 All-American Certificates. All six of those swimmers are returning for the 2019-20 season, along with two divers who qualified for NCAA Regionals and a strong incoming freshman class.
