ABOUT THE MOUNT
The Mount St. Mary's men's swimming & diving team, in just its second year of existence, closed out its regular season dual meet slate with a 3-6 record. The Mountaineers collected their first win in program history, a 119-95 victory over VMI in their second meet of the year on October 7, and followed it up with another win their next time out, edging Monmouth by a 134-128 margin. Their final dual meet win came on Senior Day in January, as they cruised past St. Francis Brooklyn, 140.5-71.5. The Mount competed in a pair of invitationals during the season, finishing in third place at the Franklin & Marshall Invite in late November, before taking fifth place at the Loyola Invitational to close out the fall semester.
