For the seven seniors on the Yale women's swimming and diving team, this Saturday's meet against Brown will be the last time they compete at Yale's Robert Kiphuth Memorial Exhibition Pool. The meet will begin at 12 pm on Saturday.
Yale's seniors, led by captain Meg Gill, are 2-1 in their Yale careers against the Bears. If last year's meet is anything to go by, the class of 2007 will have another tough test on their hands with their final meet. In 2006, Yale narrowly beat Brown 160-140.
A win this weekend could be the perfect send off for the senior class, as the Bulldogs (7-0, 4-0 Ivy) are still undefeated in dual meets this season. Yale is currently in a three-way tie for first place in the Ivy League, split with Harvard and Princeton. Something will have to give between the three rival schools when they meet next weekend at Princeton in the H-Y-P meet.
While it may be near the end of the road for Yale's seniors, the future is clearly in good hands. The dominant senior pair of Gill and backstroke specialist Moira McCloskey have been joined this year by an equally dominant pair of freshmen: Susan Kim, a breaststroke swimmer, and Jane Kim, who swims freestyle. Between them, these four swimmers have racked up an impressive number of wins over the course of the undefeated dual meet season, and all four will be in action again this Saturday.
