The Iowa men’s swimming and diving team made a huge jump in NCAA rankings this week. The Hawkeyes moved up from their No. 19 preseason rank to 10th.

The ranking is the first of the season and covers a three-week period. During that time, Iowa competed against Michigan State on Oct. 19 and Minnesota on Nov. 2.

In dual-competition the Hawkeyes are 1-1. The Black and Gold defeated Michigan State,185-108, and fell to Gophers, 165.5-132.5, in a tough meet.

The Big Ten continues to dominate the rankings with six other teams also ranked in the top 25. Michigan is No.1, Minnesota No. 9, Indiana No.11, Ohio State No.15, and Purdue No.23.

In the 2011-12 season, the highest Iowa was ranked was 10th before finishing at 14th in the final dual rankings and 17th in the prediction poll.

The ranking comes only a day after Iowa swimmer freshman Roman Trussov was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
