Swimming and Diving Ranked in January CSCAA Top 25 Dual Meet Poll

BATON ROUGE – After four wins in the month of January, the LSU Swimming and Diving team has propelled their way into the CSCAA Top 25 Dual Meet Poll. The women come in at No. 17 and the men come in at No. 22, the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America announced Wednesday.

The women’s team has notched three dual meet victories since the calendar flipped over to 2020. They defeated No. 20 Missouri at the LSU Natatorium, 151-149, behind nine individual wins. They followed that performance up with wins over Delta State, 195-90, and Florida State, 168-132.

The men’s team showed very promising swims and dives in narrow losses against No. 6 Missouri, No. 15 Florida State, and No. 5 Texas A&M. They came out victorious against Delta State by a final score of, 175-110, behind 10 individual wins and two relay wins.

“It’s great both of our programs were recognized for their performances over a really challenging 10 day stretch of four meets,” said LSU head swim coach Dave Geyer. “We know we have a strong dual meet line up and we are able to string together some exciting meets. At the end of the day though, our program has goals beyond this and both teams have a lot of work and growth ahead leading into the SEC Championships and NCAA Championships.”

The Tigers will be back in action January 31 through February 1 as they will hit the road and head to Houston to face off against Houston and Rice.
