Yale Looks For Momentum Against Brown

Elis Prepare For Last Meet of Regular Season

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Coming off of its first losses of the season, the Yale men's swimming and diving team looks to bounce back against Brown. The Elis host the Bears at Robert J.H. Kiphuth Exhibition Pool Saturday, Feb. 16 at 1:00 p.m. (changed from original date due to winter storm). The dual meet is the last of the regular season before the Ivy League championships begin on Mar. 7.

Saturday's meet also serves as the team's Senior Day, in which the team's seniors will be honored for their contributions. The seniors who will be honored are: Mike Dominski, Jared Lovett and Aaron Seriff-Cullick

The Bulldogs enter this Saturday's final regular-season meet with a 7-2 record. Yale lost last weekend to both Harvard and Princeton. The Elis will be looking to gain some momentum as they prepare for the Ivy League Championships, which are right around the corner. 

Amidst last Sunday's losses, sophomore Andrew Heymann broke a Yale swimming record with his swim in the 200-yard breaststroke. Heymann improved upon his own record with a time of 2:01.34. 

Yale has defeated Brown in its last 11 meetings, dating back to the 2001-2002 season. Yale holds an 85-9 historical advantage over Brown.

The home meet will be the Bulldogs' second of the season. The Elis defeated Columbia 170-130 in their only other home meet of the season on Nov. 10, 2012.
