DAVIS, Calif. - Recording victories against its last eight straight opponents to finish its dual schedule with an 8-2 record, UC Davis is No. 8 in the nation in CollegeSwimming.com's recent Mid-Major Rankings.
Falling .61 of a point shy of overtaking Yale for No. 7, and 1.34 points short of San Jose State's No. 6 standing, the Aggies maintained their position from January's rankings in this month's list.
Led by Harvard, Miami-OH and Princeton who occupy the top-three spots once again, North Texas and Eastern Michigan round out the top five.
The top-eight teams in February's ranking maintained their position from January's release.
