Swimming Teams Set for NCAA DIII Swimming and Diving Championships

Hoboken NJ- The Stevens Institute of Technology swimming programs are set to compete in the 2011 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Swimming and Diving Championship in Knoxville, Tenn. from March 23-26. The men’s team will have a program-record eight student-athletes competing in this year’s championship, while the women’s squad has a record nine ready to swim.

Both teams finished second at the 2011 Empire 8 Championships in late February and are looking to build upon a strong season and improve upon great finishes at the NCAA’s in 2010. The women backed up an 11th-place finish in 2009 by taking 12th in 2010, and the men finished a program-best 17th a year ago.
