On Wednesday, Northwestern’s women’s swimming and diving team was ranked 15th in CSCAA TYR Dual Meet Poll. After not being ranked last week, the Wildcats jumped into the poll and joined No. 11 Michigan, No. 18 Indiana and No. 22 Minnesota as one of four Big Ten teams in the rankings.

NU has participated in three meets in October, with all three taking place on Oct. 11 and 12.

Some Cats’ swimmers went to Dallas, Texas, where they participated in the SMU Invite and came in third place. At the meet, junior Calypso Sheridan and freshman Hannah Brunzell stood out for NU, as they both swam on the 400 medley relay team that came in second place.

Individually, Sheridan took home meet MVP after breaking the meet record for the 400 IM and winning the 100 meter backstroke as well. Brunzell won the 200 meter breaststroke, which was her second collegiate victory in that event.

At home, more NU swimmers participated in home meets against local schools. On Oct. 12, the Cats won both of their meets against their UIC and Illinois, winning by a score of 207-92 and 192-107 respectively.

Next week, NU will return to action with a meet against Oakland before facing Michigan State the next day.
