CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- The Harvard men's swimming and diving team has announced its 2014-15 schedule. Reigning Ivy League Champions, the Crimson will host five Ancient Eight foes in a renovated Blodgett Pool this season, all of which can be seen on the Ivy League Digital Network.
Harvard starts its regular season with a tri-meet against Cornell and Dartmouth on Nov. 15 in Cambridge. After Columbia pays a visit to Blodgett on Nov. 21, the Crimson will return to Austin, Texas, for the Texas Invitational on Dec. 4-6.
Harvard will stay on the road after the new year with a tough out-of-conference tri-meet with Duke and South Carolina in Durham, N.C., on Jan. 10 to test its mettle. From there, the Crimson gets back into Ivy meets with a trip to Providence to take on Brown and Penn in a tri-meet on Jan. 17.
Two weeks later, Harvard gears up to host the annual HYP meet as Yale and Princeton come to Blodgett pool on Jan. 30-31 to close out the dual season.
Harvard will look to defend its conference crown at the Ivy League Championships, hosted by Princeton this year, slated for Feb. 26-28. After qualifying seven for the 2014 NCAA Championships, the Crimson look to up the ante for the 2015 NCAA's, which are March 25-28 in Iowa City, Iowa.
