PRINCETON, N.J. –
Four members of the Harvard men’s swimming and diving team earned All-Ivy status, the league announced following the Ivy Championships.

Senior Alex Meyer led the Crimson with three first-team All-Ivy nods based on his performance at the Championship meet March 4-6. Meyer took the title in the 500-yard freestyle before also capturing wins in the 1,000 and 1,650 free events. Meyer also received the Swimmer of the Meet and the Career High point Swimmer awards at the Ivy Championship meet. Freshman Michael Stanton earned first-team All-Ivy and Diver of the Meet accolades after capturing the one-meter and three-meter events in his first ever Ancient Eight Championship meet.

Junior Jordan Diekema earned first-team status with a win in the 100 backstroke. Classmate Blake Lewkowitz was the lone Harvard representative on the All-Ivy second team, finishing in runner-up position in the 1,650 free.

Harvard will send a select group of divers to the NCAA Zone A Diving Championships, hosted by Rutgers University March 12-14.
