Men’s Swimming Pegged for Third in Preseason Poll

TOWSON, Md. – The Susquehanna men's swimming and diving team has been selected to finish third in the Landmark Conference Preseason Poll.

Eight-time defending champion USMMA was voted first with 70 points and seven first-place votes while the Crusaders finished just two points behind second-place Catholic, which received 48 points and one first-place vote.

Susquehanna lost just one senior from last year's squad, meaning the team returns nearly every point winner from last year's runner-up team. SU also added significant talent in the diving events, giving them the potential to add even more points this year.

The team opens the season on Oct. 23 by hosting the Schweikert Relays.
