The Michigan swimming and diving team — on both the men’s and the women’s side — has a long and rich tradition of training swimmers to compete not only as a Wolverine on the collegiate level, but also at the highest level in the world: the Olympics.
On Friday night, Canham Natatorium was filled with excitement. After all, it was the season’s final meet and a rivalry competition, the No. 6 Michigan men’s swimming and diving team (5-1 Big Ten, 8-1 overall) faced in-state-rival, Michigan State (0-3, 3-6).
The Wolverines not only won, but they dominated the Spartans, taking first place in every single event, in a 212-64 rout. The win helped them improve their long history of winning against the Spartans in dual meets. Michigan has won the past 40.
