The University of Louisville men’s and women’s swim team both moved up in this week’s Endless Pools / CollegeSwimming.com Top 25. The women are now No. 16, up from No. 21 and the men have risen to  No. 12 from No. 16 .

For each meet a individual are ranked according to their percentile.  These are then compiled into a team score.  (There is a minimum of 27 swims necessary to calculate a team score).  The Endless Pools / CollegeSwimming.com Top 25 takes the best team performance over a three-week period.  

Last week, the University of Louisville women's team beat BIG EAST rival Notre Dame, 162-138. Each team won eight events, but the No. 19/22 Cardinals used their depth in the distance freestyle events to pull away from the No. 18/20 Irish. The Notre Dame men's swimming and diving team posted a 155.5-145.5 victory over No. 23/16 Louisville in a dual meet at the Rolfs Aquatic Center. The U of L men set four pool records during the battle.

"Our women competed very tough and we did a much better job of keeping our intensity and focus throughout the entire meet. This was a good team win on the road," said Louisville head coach Arthur Albiero. "Our men battled all the way through. We performed at a high level and quite a few of our performances were of national impact level. I am proud of the way our group responded to adversity."
