Lee and Sattherthwaite will serve as co-captains of the men's swimming and diving team in 2013-14 (OAC).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard men's swimming and diving team has announced that Oliver Lee and Chris Satterthwaite will serve as captains for the 2013-14 season. The rising seniors were chosen by a vote of their teammates.
"We are excited that the team has elected Oliver and Chris as our 2013-2014 captains," Tim Murphy, the Ulen-Brooks Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Swimming and Diving commented. "Both have a passion and enthusiasm for Harvard and our men's swimming and diving program. We expect them to lead the team along with the rest of our outstanding senior class."
The duo has helped to re-write the Harvard record books, combining for six individual and relay records and an additional five entries on the Crimson's individual top 10. Lee boasts the fastest 50 free time (19.52) in program history and also ranks second in the 100 free (43.21) and ninth in the 100 fly (48.51). Satterthwaite, meanwhile, owns the 100 free (43.18) record while ranking second in the 50 free (19.67) and 100 free (1:35.00), and third in the 100 back (47.26). The two were also members of this season's record setting 200 free (1:18.06), 400 free (2:52.32), 200 medley and 400 medley (3:12.18) relay teams.
The freestylers have combined for 25 All-Ivy honors over the past three years. Satterthwaite has accounted for nine first team and six second team accolades, and received the Philip Moriarty Award in 2012 as the Ivy League Championships swimmer of the meet. That year he won the 50, 100 and 200 freestyles, and was a member of four relays which placed either first or second. Lee has received four first team and six second team plaudits.
Satterthwaite and Lee have also competed at the NCAA Championships each of the last two years. In 2012, the duo earned All-America honorable mention recognition as they helped the 400 free relay team to a 16th-place finish, and Satterthwaite added a second All-America honor to his resume by helping the 800 free relay team place 13th.
