In the Rankings

Ohio State is sitting pretty in both the College Swimming Coaches’ Association of America poll and the poll.

In the CSCAA poll the Buckeyes are currently 20th in the nation, and they are joined by three other Big Ten teams. Over at Ohio State is ranked 18th, along with four other Big Ten teams inside the Top 30.

Last Time Out

Ohio State stayed undefeated in dual meets last weekend, beating Big Ten foe Michigan State followed by a win over Pittsburgh.

The Buckeyes won all but one event against the Spartans. After placing second in the meet-opening 200 medley relay, Ohio State swept the remaining events en route to a 179-.5-62.5 victory. Josh Fleagle had a hand in three of those wins: he placed first in the 100 and 200 freestyle as well as the 200 freestyle relay.

Against the Panthers on Saturday Ohio State had another excellent performance. Colin Zeng remained undefeated in diving events on the season, placing first on both one and three-meter. Again, the Buckeyes won all but one event at the meet. Fleagle was a three-time event winner again, taking both the 100 and 200 frees as well as the 200 medley relay.

The Story So Far

  • Ohio State is a perfect 6-0 in dual meets this season and has a victory at the OSU Invite and Cincinnati’s quad meet to its name, making the team undefeated heading into this weekend.
  • Back in November, five Buckeyes represented the Big Ten in the inaugural USA College Challenge: Josh Fleagle, Ching Lim, Matt McHugh, and Thomas Trace all swam while Bill Wadley served as a coach on the staff.
  • Between the four swimmers they competed in 13 events, with McHugh and Fleagle posted a second place finish in the 400 freestyle relay.
  • Colin Zeng is off to another torrid start, placing first in all 16 individual events at the meets he has competed at this year. Back on Nov. 16 he was named Big Ten Diver of the Week for the first time this season, a number that will surely rise in the coming weeks.
  • While Buckeye times litter the top of the charts in the Big Ten, a number of them sit in the Top 20 nationally as well: Lim (400 IM), McHugh (100 back), Seal (1650 freestyle), and Fleagle (100 freestyle).
