Last Meets with Harvard and Rider

The Bulldogs have never swum against the Broncs. However, in their last meet with Harvard in 2015, the Crimson defeated Bryant 165-120. Senior Ben Schulte (Tumon, Guam) won the 100 breast and finished second in the 200 breast during the meet.

A bit about the Crimson

Harvard has won both of their meets in the 2018 calendar year, taking down No. 10 Arizona State and Penn. Senior Steven Tan won two of the Crimson's nine events in their victory over the Sun Devils. Sophomore Daniel Chang earned a pair of first-place finishes in their win over Penn.

Harvard has not lost a dual meet this season, going 5-0, including winning both meets in Cambridge.

A bit about the Broncs

Rider has won their only meet in 2018, taking down Monmouth 155-50 on January 16. The Broncs won 10 of the 11 events, led by Lucas Musselman, who won both the 400 IM (4:05.40) and 100 free (47.43).

They are led by three-time MAAC Swimmer of the Week Zack Molloy, who set two new ECAC records, five new MAAC records and four new Rider records in 2016-17 alone.
