This season, Cornell men’s swimming and diving has a concrete goal: to improve upon its last season and show the Ivy League what Cornell is made of. With previous assistant coach Wes Newman ’09 named as the new head coach of the swimming team, Cornell swimming is looking to make an impact in its conference this year. The Red will be starting its season this Saturday with a meet at the University of Buffalo. This meet is the opener for the swim and dive squad, but it will be closer to a scrimmage — events will not be individually scored and many swimmers will be swimming events that are not their specialty. When asked about team goals for this meet, Newman said the team is just looking to gage where they are coming into the season.
