Spectacular Swimming and Diving

The men’s swimming and diving team (8-0) won the Ivy championship and their eighth EISL title in the last 10 years, beating Princeton. John Cole ’05 won the 500-, 1000-, and 1650-yard freestyles for the fourth consecutive year; no Ivy swimmer had ever won any of these races four times. At the NCAAs, Cole took tenth in the 1650 and David Cromwell ’06 was eleventh in the 200 backstroke; Harvard finished twenty-second overall. The women (10-0) also out-swam and out-dove Princeton for the Ivy title. At the NCAAs, Noelle Bassi ’07 set a new Harvard record of 1:59.29 in the 200 butterfly, while Jaclyn Pangilinan ’08 swam the 200 breaststroke in 2:13.98, lowering the Crimson mark set in 1992 by her coach, Stephanie Wriede Morawski ’92.
