Texas women jump to No. 1; Cal continues to lead men

  The Texas women's swimming and diving team jumped from No. 5 to No. 1.

January 18, 2017 - Following a dominating 171-124 win over then-number two Georgia, the University of Texas women's swimming and diving team has been voted number one in the latest CSCAA TYR Top 25 Swimming and Diving Poll. It is the first number-one ranking for the Longhorns in Head Coach Carol Capitani's tenure and drops Stanford University to second and Georgia to third.  Virginia rounded out the top four.

RANKINGS: Men's | Women's 

On the men's side, the University of California remained the top-ranked team ahead of the defending NCAA champion Longhorns.  NC State remained third while USC moved ahead of Indiana into fourth.

"This is a very special team, and I couldn't be more proud of this group of young women," Capitani said after Saturday's win.  "I spent a long time at Georgia, and it has shaped the way I think and coach. I am very grateful for the people who have been a part of this journey. This team has some big goals, and this win is another step toward where we want to be."  

The loss snapped the Lady Bulldogs' winning streak at Gabrielsen Natatorium at 103 straight, an NCAA record which began in 1995. 

The next poll will be released February 1st.
