The Yale men's swimming and diving team finished the 2002-03 campaign with a solid third-place finish at the Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming League Championship and an 11-2 regular season record. As a new season begins, this veteran-ladened team of eight seniors and 10 juniors has the potential to continue the rich tradition of swimming and diving success. Senior captain Alex Nash returns after posting 2002-03 team-best times in the 100 backstroke (51.47) and 200 backstroke (1:51.61). Head coach Frank Keefe begins his 26th season at the helm for the Bulldogs. Yale commences their 2003-04 campaign in College Park, Md. at the Maryland Invitational on November 20, 2003. Their first home event is Monday, November 24, at noon, against Maine.
