The Yale women's swimming and diving squad is looking forward to this winter to improve upon last season's 4th place finish in the Ivy championships. The Bulldogs are led by senior captain Amy Hancock, who earned second team All Ivy honors as part of Yale's 400-yard freestyle relay team. Several team standouts return this season, including senior Paige Harazin, who in addition to being part of the 400-yard freestyle relay squad also received first team All Ivy recognition in the 200-yard freestyle event. Yale should continue to be a strong presence in diving events. Junior Melanie Loftus and senior Kathleen McKeon were selected first and second team All Ivy, respectively, in the one-meter diving category. The season opens at Columbia on November 14, 2003. The Bulldogs host Maine for their first home meet on November 24, 2003.
