As soon as the last hand hit the pool wall on Feb. 1 to end their regular season, all members of the Dartmouth swimming and diving team immediately turned their attention to the real challenge: the Ivy League Championship. After a successful season for both teams, including the women’s first .500 season since 2013-14, expectations are high as the women head to Princeton on Feb. 20 and the men head to Brown on Feb. 27. In his third year as the head coach of the swimming and diving team, James Holder expects school records and top finishes from his swimmers. The Dartmouth sat down with Holder to discuss the team’s preparations for Ivies and the season so far.

As an old school with a very long history, it is very difficult for school records at Dartmouth to be challenged or even broken. However, Donovan Spearman ’21 is on the verge of doing just that. He is currently ranked second in Dartmouth’s history for the 60 meter dash and has plans to improve his position.
