Princeton University topped the ranking of performances among teams that do not benefit from large scale football or basketball conferences or those teams that provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules. Boise State's women and Harvard's men ranked second respectively. The Princeton and Harvard men were the only Mid-Major programs to crack the overall Division I Top 25.
The Ivy League placed twelve teams (seven men, five women) into the Mid-Major Top 25. That was double of C-USA (four women, two men's) and the WAC (four men and two women) conferences. All eight Ivy league schools ranked among the Mid-Major Top 50.
The ranking accounts for teams' top performances over the Fall Semester and is the only objective ranking of swimming for NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, NAIA, and NJCAA. (Read More at our Point FAQ.)
