IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa women’s swimming and diving team is ranked No. 21 in the latest CSCAA Division I rankings, it was released Thursday.
The Hawkeyes, who have a 3-2 dual record, earn the ranking following a trio of wins at the St. Petersburg Invite, versus Iowa State, and the Hawkeye Invitational.
Iowa is one of six Big Ten schools in the top-25 rankings, alongside Michigan (No. 9), Minnesota (No. 11), Indiana (No. 14), Penn State (No. 17), and Wisconsin (No. 24). Purdue also received votes.
Seven Hawkeyes have swam to a combined 16 NCAA `B’ cut times this season and two are nationally ranked.
