Assistant Communications Director
BATON ROUGE -- For the first time this season, the LSU men’s swimming and diving team is ranked in the Top 25 of the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving poll.
“I think it’s great for the CSCAA to recognize us for our performances over the past few weekends,” LSU swimming coach Dave Geyer said. “Like we emphasized all year, the season is a progression for us, and this shows we are taking the right steps for a great end of season performance at the SEC Championships.”
The Tigers are ranked 22ndin the country after a 157.5-142.5 victory over Texas A&M in the final SEC dual meet of the season. Junior Frank Greeff led the men with victories in the 100 and 200 fly.
The LSU swimming and diving team takes the weekend off from competition before traveling to Houston, Texas, for a quad meet between Tulane, Rice and Houston Jan. 31- Feb. 1.
