Navy Men, Princeton Women Capture Mid-Major Titles



Navy Men, Princeton Women Capture Mid-Major Titles FOR the second-straight year the Princeton University women’s swimming and diving team, champions of the Ivy League, have been crowned the CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Dual Meet Champions.  On the men’s side, the United States Naval Academy, winners of the Patriot League, claimed their third title and since the 2008-09 season.   Princeton’s men’s team, champions of the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons, finished second behind the Midshipmen. For the women, Towson moved ahead of previously-top-ranked Miami-OH for second.

In addition to topping the Mid-Major rankings, Princeton and Navy also caught the attention of voters.  Both teams garnered votes in the CSCAA/TYR Division I Dual-Meet Poll.  Navy would have finished 27th and Princeton 34th in the final men’s and women’s polls.  

Women’s conference leaders included Denver University (Sun Belt - 4th overall), Miami (Mid-American - 3rd), UC-Davis (MPSF – 8th), Oakland (Summit – 10th), San Jose State (WAC – 11th) , Navy (Patriot – 18th), Boston University (America East – 19th), Richmond (Atlantic-10 – 21st) and UW-Milwaukee (Horizon).  On the men’s side, the following teams led their respective conferences: Denver (Sun Belt – 4th overall), Bakersfield (C-USA – 3rd), Oakland (Summit – 8th), Eastern Michigan (MAC – 9th), Cleveland State (Horizon – 10th), UNC-Wilmington (CAA – 11th) Cal Poly (Pac 10 – 12th), Massachusetts (A-10 – 14th), and Boston University (America East – 15th).

The Mid-Major rankings use an objective point system to compare teams’ relative strength in a traditional dual meet lineup as submitted by participating teams.  The ranking is available to those institutions that a) are not members of a BCS conference or Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules.  Teams must have submitted entries in at least two polling periods to be eligible for the final ranking.
