CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- The Washington College men's swim team is ranked 34th in CollegeSwimming.com's latest NCAA Division III men's rankings. The rankings are calculated by scoring each team's top 27 swims in a given meet over a three-week period. The Shoremen's most recent meet, the Randolph-Macon Invitational, was used to calculate their performance points.
The Shoremen won the Randolph-Macon Invitational, which was held Friday and Saturday, by a 105-point margin over second-place Randolph-Macon. Washington won seven gold and 17 total medals and broke six school records at the meet.
Two other Centennial Conference men's teams appear in the top 50 - Gettysburg (13th) and Franklin & Marshall (48th). Washington narrowly lost to Gettysburg in its season opener, 110.5-93.5, but knocked off F&M, 116-87, for the Shoremen's first win over the Diplomats since 1995.
