Bulldogs Swim to Victory Over Fordham, Rider
PISCATAWAY, N.J.- The Yale men's swimming and diving team cruised past the Fordham Rams and the Rider Broncs on Saturday, extending their undefeated streak that began at the Bucknell Invitational three months earlier. Yale beat Fordham 205-93 and Rider 209-90. The Broncs edged out the Rams, 160-135.
Tim Wise, the Robert J. H. Kiphuth Director of Men's Swimming and Diving, said that the high quality of the Rutgers facility and their competition made for a good meet.
"We swam a few season best times and some guys got to swim some events they don't get to very often," Wise said. "The meet between Fordham and Rider was extremely close and that energy pushed our guys to race at a higher level."
Yale's next meet is against its Ivy League archrivals, Harvard and Princeton. It will be the last home meet for Yale's senior swimmers and divers. Competition begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31 at the Robert J.H. Kiphuth Exhibition Pool.
