Apr 7, 2015

As Michigan State’s swimming and diving teams look forward to the 2015-16 season, they see this past one as a foundation.

In 2015, the women’s team scored 65 points at the Big Ten championship, placing them in 13th. The men’s team, had slightly better results, with 82 points and a 10th place finish.

And although Michigan State produced no NCAA qualifiers in the 2015 season, Matt Gianiodis, MSU’s head swimming coach, feels 2016 holds promise.
