Mid-Major Top 25 11/25/08
DENTON, Texas (11/25/08) - The North Texas swimming & diving team received a No. 14 ranking in the latest CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major poll on Tuesday.
The Mean Green is coming off a second place finish out of nine schools at the Husker Invite featuring the likes of Rice, Colorado State, Iowa State, and Nebraska. Rice won the meet followed by North Texas then Colorado State.
The team also set six new school records in the 100 Freestyle, 1000 Freestyle, 1650 Freestyle, 100 Butterfly, 200 Butterfly, and the 800 Freestyle Relay.
Because the latest mid-major rankings were set before the Husker Invite, the Mean Green is bound to move up in the next poll in December. North Texas' meet is the FAU Invite in Boca Raton, Florida on January 3.
The CollegeSwimming.com rankings are based on the best dual meet lineup for each team as decided by participating schools. Rankings are released four times throughout the season November (Pre-Invite), December (Post-Invite), February (Pre-Conference), and March (Post-Conference).
