Coming off of the annual H-Y-P duals, the Harvard University women's swimming team consolidated its place atop the CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Division I Rankings. Harvard's men also swept through Princeton and Yale at the HYP meet, but it wasn't enough to overtake Princeton which remained in first. The Crimson women are seeking their fifth title overall, but the first since 2009. The current ranking is the final poll until after the 2013 conference championships.
Now in its 11th year, the Mid-Major Rankings were established by then-Evansville Head Coach Clark Campbell. Now coordinated by Randy Horner at Florida International, the 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 Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules.
