Minnesota are ranked 13th in the CSCAA poll

Oct. 24, 2012

The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced Wednesday that the University of Minnesota men’s swimming and diving team is ranked No. 13 in its first National poll of the year.

The Gophers competed against reigning Big Ten Champion Michigan in their first and only dual meet of the 2012-13 season, falling to the Wolverines, 170-124. Minnesota will look to bounce back Friday as it plays host to Wisconsin in a Border Battle at the University Aquatic Center.

The men jumped seven spots in the rankings after being picked to finish 20th overall prior to the NCAA Championships last season. 

The CSCAA Division I Team Rankings are voted on by nine CSCAA-member coaches and one media member.  The poll is not designed to predict the results of the NCAA Championship, but rather which teams would win head-to-head against other teams in the country. Ranking are based on performances that have take place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.  Several teams have yet to compete this season and therefore are not ranked.
