Longhorns Continue to Lead Men's Rankings

November 12, 2016 - Norfolk, VA - The University of Texas men remain atop the latest College Swimming Coaches Association of America / TYR Top 25 Swimming & Diving Poll.  Rankings are compiled by CSCAA-member coaches and released on a weekly basis, alternating between men’s and women’s team ranking.

The Longhorns, who Head Coach Eddie Reese describes as a lot like last season's NCAA Champions, "hard-working and versatile", again swept all of the pollster's first-place votes.  While the Longhorns pursue a Division I record 12th NCAA team title, their Head Coach is happy with the top spot, "I like the ranking system. It helps add excitement along the way."

The CSCAA Division Men's Division I Committee produces in-season rankings of the 25 best performing NCAA Swimming and Diving teams in rank order at the time of each poll.  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 taken place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.  The committee does not consider teams that have not yet competed in the current college season.
