This past Saturday, the Cornell men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts to compete against Harvard and Dartmouth at Blodgett Pool. Both the men and women split the meet against the Ivy foes. The men beat Dartmouth with a score of 213-87 and lost to Harvard with a final score of 169-131. On the women’s side, the Red defeated Dartmouth, 216-84, and fell to Harvard in a tight meet with a final score of 156-144.
Senior Thomas Hallowell said that the Red welcomed the chance to kick off its Ivy season with a pair of challenging contests.
“Because we had time to rest and prepare for this meet, the team was really confident and excited to go into the first Ivy meet of the year,” he said. “Having an opportunity to compete against rivals after a strong preseason is a privilege, and we were especially excited to challenge Dartmouth.”
