99th Straight Win Highlights Georgia's Run to #1

The University of Georgia captured every first-place vote to lead the College Swimming Coaches Association of America / TYR Top 25.

It was the second-straight poll that Georgia has led the poll, but streaks are nothing new to the Bulldogs.  With their 173.5-121.5 win over Tennessee, Georgia won its 99th consecutive meet at Gabrielsen Natatorium.  

"It means an awful lot to be a part of such a rich tradition," Georgia head coach Jack Bauerle said. "You always have aspirations to do something that can't always be done, so this team and all the teams before them have to feel pretty good."

Stanford ranked second for the second-straight time while cross-bay rival California made the most significant jump.  The third-ranked Bears came out of hibernation to jump up from number seven following wins over Arizona and Arizona State.  Texas and Texas A&M rounded out the top five.  

The next poll will be the Division I men's poll February 3rd.  The next women's poll will be released February 10th.


The CSCAA Poll 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.
