LARAMIE, Wyo. -
In the most recent College Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) poll, the University of Wyoming Cowboy swimming and diving team earned votes for the top-25 poll, and are currently ranked 35th according to the poll. It is the first time the Pokes have received votes since 2004 when they were ranked as high as 25th.
"It is an honor to be recognized by the CSCAA," said UW head coach Tom Johnson. "I think we have done a tremendous job to this point by beating Denver at home, who earned votes as well, and BYU on the road. We have worked hard and it's nice to be recognized for that."
The Cowboys finished the regular season in second place in the Mountain West Conference dual standings. UNLV, currently ranked 24th in the CSCAA poll, finished on top of the MWC men's standings.
UW will continue their training this week and next for the upcoming MWC Championships. The championships begin Wednesday, Feb. 25 and run through Saturday, Feb. 28 in Oklahoma City, Okla.
